The Montessori Method of education, developed by Dr. Maria Montessori, is a child-centred educational approach that values the human spirit and the development of the whole child which in essence is directed to the head, heart and hands.
The Head refers to the development of intellectual (cognitive) function, reasoning and being logical - learning to analyse problems and solve them, being creative, imaginative, and rational.
The Heart considers the child’s emotions, feelings, morality, social development,personality development and spiritual nature.
The Hand signifies the way the child learns - through discovery by means of physical movement (gross motor skills) and the use of the hands – (fine motor skills). Maria Montessori said: The hand is the instrument of the mind.
Our curriculum meets the social, intellectual, emotional, and physical needs of the children, as they discover, learn, and develop who they are as individuals.
Our aim is therefore to produce a well balanced child in preparation for blossoming into a fulfilled, holistic, confident and independent adult.
Wonderkids will endeavour to use its curriculum to direct its learning towards maximising the child’s potential for the head, heart and hands.
