Every Abacada Montessori classroom operates on the principle of freedom within limits and is based on core Montessori beliefs – respect for each other and the environment.The child is free to work at his/her own pace, with the materials they have chosen. The directress relies on her scientific observation to determine which new activities to introduce to the child. The aim is to encourage active, positive and self-directed learning. The younger children are inspired and motivated asking for explanations, while older children share what they have learnt while simultaneously reinforcing their own learning and leadership skills. This encourages an atmosphere of inspiration and co-operation.
