Prepared Environments

Montessori classrooms provide a ‘prepared environment’ where children are free to respond to their natural tendency to work. The children’s innate passion for learning is encouraged by:

  • Giving them opportunities to engage in spontaneous, purposeful activities
  • Providing materials specifically designed to develop the children across all areas
  • Creating environments both inside and outside of the classroom tailored for the age of the children who inhabit them.

Through their work, the children develop concentration and joyful self-­discipline. Within a framework of order, the children progress at their own pace and rhythm, according to their individual capabilities in each area.
