5 Principles of Montessori Schools that Should be Used by All Early Years Settings

Maria Montessori’s approach to early years education was developed around a century ago. Its reputation grew internationally over the years and is currently one of the most well-known educational philosophies. So what is it that makes it so enduring?

The Montessori philosophy begins by recognising the crucial importance of early years in future learning; it also asserts that children have the greatest capacity to learn between the ages of zero to six. At Alphablocks Nursery School & Pre-Prep, Hadley Wood, we share this belief and consider it as a key tenet of our school’s ethos. We also share the same overarching goal of fostering competent and responsible children who become lifelong learners.
