Concentration is the biggest issue which we are facing nowadays. The Montessori education offers children a maximum of spontaneity, enabling each child to reach the same or higher levels of scholastic attainment. Structured environment is the key for the child to decide what he wants to do. It fosters concentration, which leads a child towards a wholesome self-construction. Concentration means “One is with himself as much as he is with that task”.
Discipline is another problem we all are complaining about. The Montessori education method achieves a high level of discipline which originates from within a child, and is not imposed from outside. The freedom offered in the Montessori environment instills independence within limits and an intrinsic sense of self-discipline within a child.
Interest in seeking age appropriate knowledge is missing nowadays, which is resulting in high school drop outs. The Montessori education method provides each child the opportunity to work with the materials at his own pace. A child receives individual help and is neither pressured to keep up with others, nor bored waiting for others to catch up. Each child needs his own pace, and when given, the knowledge gained is deeper.
Cohesion is missing from our lives and society. Children by nature are accommodating and helpful. The Montessori education method supports the idea of different age group children under one roof, providing children with endless opportunities for mutual help, which is joyfully given and gratefully received.
Wholesome Development is very important in an individual`s life. The Montessori education method develops the whole personality of a child, not merely the intellectual faculties, but also physical, emotional and spiritual areas are strengthened. By living as free members of a real, functioning community, children develop those fundamental social qualities that form the basis of personal fulfillment and social responsibility. Children under 6 years of age are too managed, which hinders their development.
