Thanks to the communion that exists between the PYP and the Montessori philosophy, at Greenleaves Montessori we are committed to accompanying our children in their interests, questions and theories about themselves and the world around them.
Through the cycle of uninterrupted work inquiry, students have the opportunity to generate their own learning and follow up on their interests in an autonomous, responsible and respectful way with themselves, their classmates and the environment. Thus generating a harmonious space to carry out their daily work.
Throughout all stages of the PYP, each student is the principal agent of his or her own learning and the learning of others. In both Montessori and the PYP, the student is seen as an individual with the capability to optimize achievement to reach their potential.
When a child feels self-confident, he then stops seeking adult approval at every step.” Maria Montessori.
The teaching function is not limited to generating materials, spaces and strategies that allow free mobility and freedom of action for educational purposes, but the teachers are personal companions for each of the children in the development of socioemotional management. This close and personal guidance develops a feeling of belonging, community awareness and meeting children´s own as well as other people´s personal needs.
