Octopus Montessori

Octopus Montessori is run by qualified Montessori teachers. The highest standards are maintained at all times and the room is fitted out with all the latest montessori educational equipment.

The main idea of Montessori Method is that every child is treated with respect, given freedom within the limits of a carefully structured environment, and allowed to develop naturally at their own pace.

n our Montessori class room the children follow a set programme of tasks or exercises. They learn everyday life skills such as dressing themselves, washing themselves etc. They learn social graces and manners but also cover a wide range of subjects. However our small class numbers make for individual attention, practical life skills and a commitment to the development of each child as an individual.

Who was Maria Montessori?

Maria Montessori(b.1870 d.1952) was born in Italy and trained as a doctor. She was the first woman doctor of her day. She went on to lecture at university, then studied philosophy and psychology, became an educationalist and devoted her life to working on behalf of the child.

Dr. Montessori's main objective was to help children everywhere to reach their maximum learning potential, while becoming well balanced individuals able to cope with the pressures of modern day living. Montessori education provides a range of experiences which will stimulate a child's love of learning and discovery.
