Montessori

Del Mar Hills Nursery School offers a variety of Montessori equipment and materials. Montessori recognizes in children a natural curiosity and desire to learn. The Montessori materials awaken this desire and channel that curiosity into learning experience, which children enjoy.

 

Montessori materials help children to understand what they are learning by associating an abstract concept with a concrete sensorial experience. In this manner, the child is truly learning, not just memorizing. The Montessori materials stress that children learn and progress at their own pace so that fast learners are not held back, and slow learners are not frustrated by their inability to keep up.

 

We value Montessori materials, but do not require our teachers to follow strict Montessori methodology.
