What is Montessori Methodology?

Named after Maria Montessori, the first woman physician, this method, in its essence, deals with developing the personality of a child through sensory learning which includes touching, smelling, seeing, tasting, rather than learning and reading. The classroom includes such self-correcting material, the use of which is demonstrated by teachers and re-enacted by children. The Montessori philosophy is based on a profound respect for each child as a unique human being. Our approach assumes that children are born intelligent, curious, creative and are ripe to develop a sense of wonder and imagination. The goal is not to control, but to inspire our children to learn voluntarily. since it aims to improve the concentration abilities of children, the classrooms and materials are aesthetically designed and give a home-like feeling to children.  


What is Kindergarten Method?​

Kindergarten programs like those at Hickory Dickory are also based on the principle of individualized learning. The kindergarten method of teaching is nurturing and supportive rather than competitive. Children learn through fun and engaging activities like Art and music, transforming playtime into opportunities to instil important cognitive skills, motor skills, and social skills. A good kindergarten program combines a multitude of teaching methods and instructional designs. Children in a kindergarten using the Montessori method are encouraged to learn at their own pace.

Finally, the kindergarten method of teaching prepares children for the more formal learning that takes place in grade school. The Montessori method empowers children to ask questions and direct their own educational trajectory.
