The teaching materials in our bilingual Montessori schools
In a Montessori kindergarten, the teaching material is adapted to the size and strength of your child in order to encourage more independence. It is composed of different activities arranged on trays and put at the disposal of the children.
After an initial presentation of the activities by the educational advisors, the children can help themselves freely and appropriate the activity material. The activities offered are regularly renewed to meet the individual needs of each child and to ensure continuous progress.
In our bilingual Montessori schools, we encourage the learning of English and French, which is why we provide the children with teaching materials in both languages. In this way, we support them in their daily desire to learn.
The objective in creating and offering these materials to children is not to teach them knowledge, but rather to encourage the development of their spirit of inquiry. Each child explores and discovers in order to learn. The aim is not to succeed in the activity, but to practice it and to build up their inner self, progressively by manipulating it.
