"Journey and Discovery
On a journey of discovery and research into the Montessori world
The Montessori EcoSchool invites you to a journey of discovery into the Montessori world for Friday and Saturday, 06 and 07 March. On this journey you will have the opportunity to discover the prepared environments of the individual age levels for yourself at your leisure and to try out the materials.
The journey begins on Friday at 7.30 pm in the cosy Montessori nest ("Nido") of our youngest children aged twelve months to about two years. From there it continues via the Casita, "the little house" for children aged about two to three years, to the Casa, the "house of children", the prepared environment for the 3-6 year olds. Finally, in the classroom for the six to twelve year olds, the whole Montessori world, including the cosmos, invites exploration and discovery. The environments can be examined and visited at leisure on this first journey.
In each prepared environment, there are the learning and living landscapes of the respective age group for the travellers to discover: the materials with which the children work.
On Saturday from 9.00 a.m. we will exchange our impressions of Friday evening over breakfast and have time to answer questions. Afterwards, it's time to get hands-on and try your hand at being a Montessori researcher. Materials of all ages are available for you to get to know and try out.
On this journey, the participants of the tour group can experience how the learning environments build on each other and in what way the materials that the children handle sensually in the children's house indirectly prepare them for school work; how the work leads the children to concentrate and what diverse learning experiences they have in the process.
The trip will end after a final discussion at 2 pm.
