Our Community Model
With the pandemic causing all schools to be shut down, we had to transform our in-school Montessori learning to a Community based model. This meant we had to start recording video lessons and enable each child with learning kits that included lap tables, mats to sit, stationery items, etc. In addition to the video lessons, we also create videos on parenting and how parents should facilitate the lesson for their child as well. For the first time, these parents are highly involved with their children's educational activities. Additionally. we have identified and trained Community Champions who then teach our children within these communities under the guidance of our teachers. Our children and their parents now continue to learn and grow.
As we drive down almost any road in Bangalore, you will see a construction site. And right there, in the middle of the sand, gravel and machines you are likely to see small children playing. The population of migrant workers in Bangalore is growing daily. The families live in ‘blue tents’ with no access to running water, electricity or sanitation.
MONTESSORI IS BACKED BY REAL RESEARCH
New Neural connections are formed in a young brain every SECOND
Research shows that motor development and cognitive development are fundamentally intertwined. Freedom of expression and movement in school affects development directly
We encourage children to engage in movement through out the day. The child decides the material to learn, and works with freedom to pick up or put back the material. The child learns to use her work area with respect for other children's space.
