We go to the children’s center: Montessori technique, kids

Today we attended classes in the Montessori development center for the second time. And I want to share my impressions with you, reader Alimero.

Montessori system

I will say right away that the Montessori method impresses me from the university. In teaching, not one hour is devoted to the study of the life and work of this outstanding woman. The system of Maria Montessori is based, first of all, on the conviction that the child and his personality are the main ones.

A distinctive feature of the system was also the realization that the child should experience only joy from the learning process, and that this process should be managed independently.

The role of an adult is only to create an environment, to provide the child with the necessary materials and benefits, as well as to be a sensitive and tactful assistant for the child.

What we saw in the children’s center

Several separate rooms, each of which is given a specific theme. There is a sports room, a room for joint classes in dancing and singing, a room with a table and chairs – in it you can draw, sculpt, glue.

Also in the center there is a water room in which there is a sink with water and there are many different basins, jugs, water mills.

Another room – a room with cereals. The containers are filled with cereals, macaroni, which kids can pour, sort out as they please.

And the most interesting room is a room with a great variety of educational toys. Puzzles, sorters, animals, slides with balls, wooden mosaics, cubes, doors with locks – which is not there. Fun aimed at the development of motor skills, attention, speech, outlook.


All items are in a single copy, which encourages children to come into contact with each other: ask, change, take away, thereby participating in various life situations. In addition, everything is in the zone of visibility and reach of the child: the shelves are located below, tables and chairs – only for children.

The little ones decide for themselves what to do in the midst of this abundance. They move from room to room, play what they want, and with the start of classes in the common room, the teacher picks everyone up for a lesson with a bell.

They sing, dance, carry out unpretentious exercises with the guys, tell tales, always using interesting materials: bells, soft bears, and tambourines.

My child is in the center

As for my son, it is already clear from the second lesson – he did not include songs and dances in the plan of individual development. For half an hour he is ready to play in the flowing and water rooms, draw, glue, ride on the trampoline in the playroom, but you can’t draw anything into it.

As soon as I did not lure him – it is useless. Since, according to Montessori, development should be a joy, I had to give up my hopes that my son would go and have fun with the rest of the children.

But, the Montessori system is so good that, apart from dances and songs, the center provides a huge field for other activities. And those numerous toys and objects that a child studies during the time when the rest are jumping with the teacher, definitely go to his advantage.

My solution: the center of Montessori – yes. Mother’s prejudices that the baby should work along with everyone under the teacher’s words – no.

Montessori Commandments

Finally, several of the commandments of Maria Montessori, which I read on the stand in the center, and which I liked very much:

– never touch the child until he turns to you

– concentrate on the development of good in the child, so that in the end the bad will remain less and less space

– Respect the child, watching the work of others or resting, or thinking about what he was doing or is going to do. Never call him or force him to take other active actions.
