Brilliant Futures provides children, toddler to age 6, with a positive beginning to their learning in an authentic Montessori environment. Montessori is an individualized approach to education that helps each child reach full potential in all areas of life. It is a child-centered approach that encourages creativity and curiosity while guiding children to ask questions, explore, investigate and think for themselves as they acquire different skills.
Developed by Dr. Maria Montessori over one hundred years ago, a Montessori education nurtures self-directed learning with activities that promote the development of social skills, emotional growth and physical coordination as well as the acquisition of knowledge. The highly integrated curriculum allows students to develop self-discipline. They develop respect for themselves, others and for the world they live in. Children develop the joy of learning while being provided with the freedom to stay with an activity thereby developing self-esteem through independent learning.
A Montessori environment focuses more on the student’s learning than on the teacher’s teaching. Specially trained Montessori teachers guide, coach and facilitate each child’s learning though continuous observation and assessment.
In Montessori education, children are learning skills to care for themselves, their environment and their community. There are activities that develop spoken and written language, reading, mathematics and the natural sciences.
