How is a Montessori program different from other programs?

Children learn through practicing tasks rather than through listening and having to remember. In many non-Montessori classrooms children are expected to learn by listening to the teacher. Work is usually with paper and pencil. In a Montessori classroom, on the other hand, children learn by practicing with apparatus that embodies the concept to be mastered. For example, when learning about shapes such as triangles, squares, circles, etc., instead of listening to a teacher talk about the shapes and watching her draw then on the chalk board the children trace real figures and make designs. They fit different shapes together to make patterns. They make fine discrimination by fitting shapes into the correct corresponding holes.





At Nature's Materials, we are inspired by the Montessori program and our goal is to provide multipurpose materials that are hands on.
