The basic principle in the Montessori Philosophy of education is that every child carries within his / her self-potentialities of a person that he/she can become. The Life Force that is there is hidden in every young child to develop his/her intellectual, physical and spiritual powers to the fullest.
The Pflugerville Montessori School is established to assist those children entrusted to its care to help become that unique human being ... for the benefit of their own personal development ... and for the good of the society in which one day they will be involved with. The goal of the program is to help each child his or her potential thereby helping the child to develop concentration, self-esteem and experience the joys of learning.
Montessori offers a rigorous and innovative academic program. The curriculum is organized into overlapping subjects, rather than individualized subjects that children merely memorize and covered by the teacher only once at a specific grade level.
The Montessori Curriculum should be introduced in the early years of a child’s life, at least starting at three years of age and continued into later years. The lessons are introduced in a stages starting from simple and concrete. The lessons are repeated and reintroduced with added challenges throughout the consequent years with a degree of abstraction and complexity. By introducing the lessons in a simple and concrete manner, it helps the child to complete the lessons and feel as if though he / she has succeeded. Then challenges are added on without the child being aware of the complexity of the lesson. Thus, instilling independence, self confidence and self esteem in the child about his/her work.
In most pre-schools, a teacher teaches the children educational concepts in a group. In the Montessori school, the children learn concepts spontaneously as they work independently with the many materials in the environment. The materials in the Montessori classroom progress from simple to more complex design and usage, each level of understanding being worked through repetition to reach the next level of understanding.
The child has an ability to manipulate the materials. The child learns by arranging materials in a specific way, which explains the function of a concept. The movement and the work are inseparable: With his / her thinking, the materials begin as concrete expressions of a concept and gradually become more abstract expressions of that concept. The materials are designed for self-education and self-correction.
