Children Learn Because They Want to Learn
In the Montessori method of learning, each child is given the opportunity to explore all the materials and choose the things that he wants to learn about. Thus he learns because he wants to learn rather than sitting listening to a teacher talking. The Montessori method helps the child develop creativity, problem solving, critical thinking, and time management skills, along with care of the environment and of his fellow children. The teacher observes what the child is doing and introduces him to further materials at the time that is appropriate for the child.
Because they are enjoying what they are doing, the children learn to love learning, and they develop concentration, persistence, discipline, and motivation. Every child works at his own pace, so no child is forced to perform to a standard, and at the same time a child who is a quick learner is not held back. Equally, there is no sense of competition, each child competing with himself. The children also learn by helping each other, with older children often showing the younger ones the way, which at the same time underscores their own learning.
