Montessori is an educational philosophy based on the research results of Dr. Maria Montessori to help children develop according to their own abilities. One of the easiest ways to understand Montessori is to listen to the language Montessori educators use to encourage independence and promote children’s critical thinking. This method is based on the observation that children have a natural love for learning that is motivated by their desire to understand and explain the world around them. The purpose of the Montessori education platform is to nurture the needs and interests of each child and help children expose and develop the potential available.

This method of education focuses on five main subjects: practical life skills, sensory development, logical mathematics, language and writing, science and culture.

For the Montessori methodology, the prepared learning studying environment is a prerequisite and a foundation for the designing classrooms. All tools are neatly arranged scientifically, friendly and suitable for all ages of children. Sunrise Kidz always pays attention to the smallest details to ensure the safety of children such as using drinkable watercolors or children’s toys are washed and dried once a week. The classroom environment is always prepared, the teacher has the ability to repair themselves, and the role of the teacher is a knowledgeable observer. Children are encouraged to learn at their own pace, to pursue their interests and to correct their own mistakes.

At Sunrise Kidz the class is designed to encourage children to freely choose activities, become independent and have the opportunity to learn and interact accordingly themselves as well as participate in a variety of activities to support children’s development.

Unlike the traditional education method, the Montessori methodology specifically emphasizes the role of activeness, independence, and freedom (within the acceptable range) in the formation of a child’s personality. Children are free to explore and discover the surrounding world as desired, at this point in time, teachers play a role of observation, support, and guidance. Children learn how to take care of themselves from the smallest things like washing hands, changing clothes, clean up toys without the help of parents or teachers at school.

Montessori class is a blending class to create a miniature society for children to experience. Here children have the opportunity to work and study with other children that have different personalities and abilities. Older children will play the role of older brothers and sisters in the family to support and guide them so that children will learn to be sociable and help people. On the side of the younger children, for example, they will make an example of older brothers and sisters and will be confident that when they grow up, they will be also able to do the same as their brothers and sisters.

Besides, this method has no reward and penalty like the traditional method. Therefore, children will not suffer from inferiority and not be pressured by the learning outcomes of others. In fact, each child has a different development process and learning ability. Therefore, the teacher only prepares a beautiful environment and is ready for children, who are the ones decide which activities to participate. Then the teacher observes and records carefully, minutely the level of accomplishment the children did. Montessori teachers are required to have extremely high observations skills, do not have a specific class schedule but always remember in detail, exactly what each child is learning and make a decision to move the child to a higher level of activities at the appropriate time. As for the baby, each tool has only one so that they always have to wait and line to take turns. They must respect the teacher because if fail, they will not be able to continue their activities anymore and the extra activities are not also easy. From there, they learn that there are things that can never be recovered.
