Montessori Method has been in existence for more than a hundred years, in more than 60 countries. It caters to children from different socio-economic strata and the differently abled too. Its unique features are:
Focus on development rather than mere learning.
Truly child-centric i.e. curriculum emphasizes the needs of the child rather than requirements of other stakeholders.
Children learn through actively working with their hands and senses. Initiates independence and self-confidence.
Application of its principles at various stages in the development of a child – infancy, preprimary, primary and adolescence.
Adapted to the locality as well as the individual child, giving multi-age, multi-level teaching.
IIMS helps its students understand these features through well developed, interactive course content, backed by observations, workshops and practical work. Research done in adapting the method to the needs of the child at various stages is brought into the training program. Exposure to public opinion is given through participation in the programs of IMA.
