Why Montessori

Here at The Beehive Montessori School we believe that education is a lifelong process of self-discovery, that learning should be a joyful experience, and that Montessori pedagogy is the most effective and successful model of education available today to meet this end. Dr Maria Montessori revolutionised the concept of education by devising a system that put the student at the centre of learning, as opposed to the historical industrial model of education, which focused on the role of the teacher. This is the beauty of a Montessori education. It is a sophisticated and ingenious method of responding to the developmental needs of children, in order to make education a joyful, effortless and meaningful experience.

“We must help the child to act for himself, [sic]

will for himself, think for himself;

this is the art of those who aspire to serve the spirit.”

Dr. Maria Montessori, Education for a New World, p. 69
