The main goal of Montessori is to provide a stimulating, child-oriented environment where children can explore, touch and learn without fear. Each child learns at his own pace, and teachers are understanding and encouraging, enabling each child to enjoy learning, and feel happy about his path and purpose in life. Children are not expected to conform to set standards of achievement as in conventional schools. The Montessori method takes account of the needs, talents, gifts, and special individuality of each child. The children learn at their own pace, so they are not being constrained nor criticized for what they do. There is a total freedom to learn which in turn makes learning fun.
All children, whatever their abilities or interests, reach their full potential because the equipment is designed to accommodate the different ways children learn. Montessori schools teach independence from an early age. The children take an active part in the operation of their classroom environment, such as preparing and serving snacks during break time, and putting learning equipment away after they have used it. Practical tasks like sweeping, cleaning, activity preparations, tying shoe laces, etc., are available for children to learn on a daily basis. In a Montessori environment, children are encouraged to respect and help each other. If they choose, they will work with other children and help each other, and in some cases, even teach each other.
