Why Montessori? The method is based on observing the child and giving him or her choices as to what they study and how they do it. Every child works at his own pace and is working at something that he enjoys, so actually loves what he is doing, rather than having to do exactly the same thing as everyone else under a rigid form of traditional teaching. We like to say that at Learn And Play Montessori our children love to learn. Each child works at his own pace and is not under pressure to get to a certain point at the same time as everyone else. Equally, those who are quick to learn do not get held back.
The Montessori Method completely does away with competition, and there is plenty of opportunity for group work. We find that those who are quicker to learn will often help those who are slower. The method develops the whole personality of the child, not just his intellectual faculties, but his powers of deliberation, initiative, and independent choice. Despite the fact that the child makes his own choices, nonetheless he will attain the same or higher levels of scholastic achievement as those under a traditional schooling system.
So when you are considering your Dublin preschool options, make certain that you visit Learn And Play Montessori and see what we do for yourself.
