Montessori Method

"Scientific observation has established that education is not what the teacher gives; education is a natural process spontaneously carried out by the human individual, and is acquired not by listening to words but by experiences upon the environment. The task of the teacher becomes that of preparing a series of motives of cultural activity, spread over a specially prepared environment, and then refraining from obtrusive interference. Human teachers can only help the great work that is being done, as servants help the master. Doing so, they will be witnesses to the unfolding of the human soul and to the rising of a New Man who will not be a victim of events, but will have the clarity of vision to direct and shape the future of human society."

Dr. Maria Montessori developed the Montessori method through her extensive work with children and her keen insight and observation skills. She based her educational methods on scientific observation of children's learning processes. Guided by her discovery that children teach themselves, she designed a "prepared environment" in which children could freely choose from a number of developmentally appropriate activities. Now, nearly a century after Maria Montessori's first casa dei bambini ("children's house") in Rome, Montessori education is found all over the world, spanning ages from birth to adolescence.

What Other People Said...

"...Our experience at the Northstar school has been wonderful, and when time came for our third son Arjan to join school, the question did not even arise on where he would go, no matter the distance from our home!

The premises at Tomken Rd are fantastic, modern and spacious, and the gym would make most other schools jealous. The after school programs and clubs are of a rare variety, and swimming and skating lessons are definitely a plus. And the many social events organised all year round (Winter concert, International Day, etc.) are so much fun and bring a lot of liveliness for everyone..." - Isabelle and Ushvinder BHATIA
