Requirement to Start a house of children
Montessori system is a special system of education specially required for the children having age between 3-6 years (which is mainly discussed in this course)As human beings in present from are the results of evolution of millions of years.For survival and development at maximum level,We have information in our genes for thousands of behavior and attitudes.Each child knows how to fulfill the basic needs for its survival such as from the time of birth.
He knows how ton suck milk ,at the age of six months he prepares her gums for teeth by putting things in mouth,learns how to crawl,walk and run along with gaining some experiences.
The children do not have best experiences at home because homes are designed according to adults needs and they do not allow the children to do anything according to their natural inner urge but Montessori house should be designed according to the needs of children.
The house of children should fulfill the inner needs of children so that they reach normality and get the normal state of mind by showing happy and satisfactory behavior without creating any disturbance in the environment.This can be done by providing suitable activities to students.
In a Montessori house of children,every child gains and progresses at his own pace then moves to the next step of learning.Each child is considered as a whole universe itself so progress and development is individually considered.In the house of children ,Classrooms are communities of adult and children where less focus is on teacher and more on the children similar to the concept in a real family.so Montessori classrooms should show family setting.
In Montessori house of children ,the teacher should make different activities for children on the base of individuality of children and should give time to students to select material for their work from the prepared environment.So freedom should be provided to students to select activities according to their inner urge which results in appropriate development of children.
