The Montessori Method
Montessori is scientific method, practical & tested for bringing forth the very best in young children. It is the method of seeing children as they really are nurturing their enthusiasm & intellectual and social needs.
Feeling the need for spiritual development & nurturing of the soul, The philosophy & methodology of HAUNA has been adopted at huda. HAUNAis an Arabic word meaning “humility” it is also an acronym for the holistic affordable, universal , natural & accessible education. Children passing out of schools should not only excel academically, but alo should prove to be an asset to society and humanity. This is only possible where there is complete harmony between the mind, body and soul. The foundation for this has to be laid from this budding age . It is this philosophy that HAUNA – Humility through education represents.
The essence of Montessori lies in its informal settings. No benches /desk/black boards& no one way lectures. Children either use short tables ( Chowkies) or floor mats to work materials
Mixed age groups- activity level is based on intellectual capacity rather than age . No readymade text books or “One size fits all syllabus”
The stand out factor that differentiates Montessori from other play schools is indeed the activity material. Though they appear as playthings, they are not so .Each material is designed to serve a specific well defined purpose and to imbibe a specific concept .they may appear as toys for the child but are actually excellent teaching aids for the teacher. The materials cover all areas of learning – physical, mental & disciplinary. As a rule, pencil & paper work is minimal & starts in the higher age group.
The environment is that of supervised freedom. The child has free choice of selecting the material to work with. The time frame is flexible and there are no deadlines.
The books are minimal and there is no burden of homework.
The teacher work with child and plays the role of a facilitator. Her role is to maintain decorum, encourage ideas & interaction , imbibe values & train the child in maintaining discipline
