MONTESSORI PHILOSOPHY 

MONTESSORI PHILOSOPHY 

“Older children are extremely well prepared for their next stage in learning and eventual move to school” Ofsted 2016 

At Holly Grange each child is treated respectfully as unique individuals. Their social and emotional development is essential to their education. Emphasis is not on what is to be learnt but how. Children are naturally interested in the world around them, they choose what to learn and at Holly Grange we help them to find the best way of learning. 
 
Our trained teachers guide them in using their own abilities and with specially designed Montessori materials.

The Montessori approach follows each child’s individual learning styles and is carefully structured to allow your child to develop at their own pace. Children are not afraid of making mistakes. They are encouraged to see them as natural steps in the learning process, within this culture they enjoy challenges and gain a sense of perseverance. 
 
Children work on self-chosen tasks and team up on bigger projects, they are encouraged to strive for their personal best, or for the good of all, rather than competing against each other. 
 
Children learn through hands-on experience, investigating and questioning. We encourage active learning and do not passively feed them information. The teacher aims to facilitate a child’s independent discovery rather than giving instruction. The value of learning is in the way it’s applied. When children recognise the usefulness of what they learn, they come to enjoy learning.
