Abstract/Notes: Easy Montessori Manager is dedicated to all the schools in Malaysia which are using the Montessori approach. It resembles an online management system but specifically designed for Montessori preschools and inclusive of Montessori Methods and for teachers' guidelines and assessments. A preliminary study was conducted to investigate the need of an online Montessori module by doing a survey. The survey is conducted by using questionnaires which are distributed to four Montessori schools in Selangor. From the result of the study, a prototype of the actual system is developed in order to get a general idea on how the system should look like. Afterward, the prototype is then evaluated by a Montessori principal to get her opinion on a good Montessori management system.

Montessori Infant and Toddler Programs: How Our Approach Meshes with Other Models

Abstract/Notes: Today, Montessori infant & toddler programs around the country usually have a similar look and feel--low floor beds, floor space for movement, low shelves, natural materials, tiny wooden chairs and tables for eating, and not a highchair or swing in sight. But Montessori toddler programs seem to fall into two paradigms--one model seeming more developmentally oriented while the other has a slightly more academic feel. Some of the more academic programs, or academic transition programs, have class a few hours a day, 9 months of the year designed for older toddlers. On the other hand, programs that provide full-day Montessori care and education 7 days a week, year-round for the infants and toddlers of parents who work, may lean toward a developmental approach. Families have different needs and expectations. Along with other types of materials, "academic transition" toddler classrooms introduce some traditional early childhood didactic materials by modifying them for toddlers. Montessori infant & toddler programs are something special because Montessori philosophy is special. Because Montessori philosophy teaches that every child carries within her the person she will become, those in Montessori care and education are compelled to treat each child with dignity and respect. Montessori believed in the innate intelligence and integrity of every infant, toddler, and child. So Montessori infant & toddler programs are built on respect for the "personhood" of the child, trust in the child's inborn desire to learn, and belief in the miraculous ability of the child to absorb his world. Emmi Pikler and Magda Gerber focused on the "I-thou" relationship with the child. William and Martha Sears emphasized nurturing touch. In this article, the author describes how the Montessori approach meshes with other models. To guide peaceful, tolerant, cooperative children, adults must also learn to be peaceful, tolerant, and cooperative. It is acceptable, and even desirable, for differences to exist in teaching styles among competent Montessori professionals as they integrate components of other methodologies that they deem compatible with Montessori, but also occasionally as they interpret Montessori philosophy differently. Tolerance, open-mindedness, a desire to share knowledge, and a longing for continued self-improvement are critical to individual professionalism.

Abstract/Notes: This paper deals with the Montessori pedagogy, used methods, Montessori environment and Montessori materials. The principles of Montessori pedagogy were developed by Maria Montessori and they haven’t changed since then. According to the teachings of Maria Montessori observation of children is crucial in understanding the child's possibilities and needs in self-development. Montessori method fully respects the child's individuality, self-motivation, a unique children's ability of selfdevelopment and improvement of their own skills and developing potential. The prepared environment is extremely important in the overall concept. Environment on indirect way evokes curiosity and interest in children to certain activities and also allows the child to understand the meaning of them. Key components of the prepared environment are specifically designed learning materials. Montessori material is authentic, universal and in all Montessori childcare centers in the world the same. The didactic material is divided into several groups: material for exercises of practical life, language material, sensorial material, mathematics material and material for cosmic education. The aim of the didactic materials is to educate the senses by means of repeated exercise. They develop the child’s independence, selfconfidence, concentration, compliance, coordination, and order. According to Montessori pedagogy prepared educator has key role in education. Montessori educator must develop the ability of indirect management, allow child to build his personality, make decisions and become independent. Montessori system is conceptually different from the other pedagogical approaches and has unique access to the child and his or her needs. This is the philosophy of development by which an individual acquires operative knowledge needed for its future participation as adults in society. Personal action and achievements child strengthens their self-confidence, develop respect, love and positive cooperation with other children as a basis for future democratic action.

Abstract/Notes: Anne E. George, the first American trained as a directress by Montessori in 1910, is significant as the paramount Montessori educator in the United States from 1910 to 1915. George, who established the first American Montessori school in Tarrytown, New York in 1911, was also the English-language translator of Montessori’s book, The Montessori Method (1912). Alexander Graham Bell and his wife, Mabel, intent on promoting Montessori education, established the national Montessori Educational Association, with George as its Director of Research. George was also the headmistress of the Montessori schools supported by the Bells in Washington, DC. In addition, George was Montessori’s aide and translator during her extensive lecture tour in 1913. Montessori’s relationship with George deteriorated. Montessori revoked Anne George’s credentials as a Montessori directress in 1915. The ever-loyal George, who strived to replicate the Montessori Method in American private schools, and, once, the premier American Montessori educator, was discredited by her mentor. After her marriage in 1919, George never returned to the field of education.

A Study of Parents’ Views and Choices Towards the Montessori Method

See More

Abstract/Notes: Dr. Maria Montessori established the Montessori Method in the early 1900s. Her first book ‘The Montessori Method’ was translated into English in 1912 and has since become a globally recognised form of education (Isaacs, 2012). This paper concentrates on the parents’ views and choices towards the Montessori Method as this particular subject remains largely unstudied, especially within the UK. The author of this thesis is qualified in Montessori early years practice and therefore has a personal interest in gaining an insight into the parents’ point of view. The thesis identifies and analyses the key aspects of the philosophy and curriculum within the Montessori Method. This was achieved by studying Dr. Montessori’s original ideas and recent supportive or critical reviews. To gain the perspective of the parents, questionnaires were designed to elicit answers to the following questions: What are the parent’s views of the Montessori Method? Do parents understand the Montessori Philosophy?; Do parents choose a nursery because it is using the Montessori Method? The study was conducted within two private Montessori Nursery schools: N:B and N:A. The questionnaire had a Likert 5 scale design, consisting of 16 questions and 1 open question giving the option of additional comments. 40 questionnaires were distributed in each setting. The response rate was: N:B: 23 (57.49%): and N:A: 16 (40%), with a total sample size of 39. The Likert scale results were processed into graphs and the displayed numerically. Additionally 26 participants provided extra information in the optional section, the results of which were organised into a graph of the five recurrent themes together with illustrative quotes. The results showed that even though the majority of the parents chose their nursery because it was using the Montessori Method and agreed with the philosophy, only a minority actually demonstrated a level of understanding of the method. The conclusion was that parents thought they know what Montessori education was but actually their understanding was superficial. The implication of this finding is that parents express a willingness to support the Montessori Method and Practitioners need to provide more information for them. However, the study was restricted due to the quantitative design of the questionnaire and the lack of academic sources to support findings. Parents’ participation was willingly given, suggesting further study in this area to be feasible.

Abstract/Notes: The purpose of the study was to investigate the views of Montessori preschool teachers on inclusive education in Montessori approach. The views of 18 participants were examined in this study. All participants were selected from Ankara and İstanbul and they were investigated by a semi-structured interview protocol that was developed by the researcher based on the literature review. The protocol contained questions in three major parts; these were demographic questions about participants, questions about views on inclusive education and questions about views on inclusive education in Montessori approach and its advantageous and disadvantageous for children with disabilities. Phenomenology design was employed in the study and purposive sampling was used to reach the participants. According to findings of content analysis, Montessori teachers stated that they did not find themselves adequately educated and experienced in inclusive education but a large part of them thought that inclusive education is good for development of both disabled and non-disabled students. On the other hand, Montessori teachers expressed that enabling children to be independent and to encourage them to make their own decisions are the most important point of Montessori understanding. However, when considered in terms of disabled students, most teachers indicated that such liberal environment could constitute disadvantages for such students. Teachers stated that an educational environment which is structured and where influence of the teacher is more intensive would be better in terms of education of the disabled child, particularly when working with students with severe disabilities or students with attention deficit or autism. / Bu çalışma, Montessori anaokullarında çalışan okul öncesi öğretmenlerinin bütünleştirme eğitimi ve Montessori yaklaşımında bütünleştirme uygulamaları hakkındaki görüşlerini anlamayı amaçlamıştır. Çalışma 18 katılımcıyı kapsamaktadır. Tüm katılımcılar Ankara ve İstanbul ilinde Montessori okullarında çalışan okul öncesi öğretmenleri arasından seçilmiş olup, görüşmeler araştırmacı tarafından geliştirilen yarı yapılandırılmış görüşme formu ile yapılmıştır. Görüşme formu üç ana bölümden oluşmaktadır. İlk bölümde katılımcılar hakkındaki demografik bilgiler sorgulanırken, ikinci bölümde katılımcıların bütünleştirme eğitimi hakkındaki görüşleri ve son bölümde ise katılımcıların Montessori eğitimindeki bütünleştirme uygulamaları hakkındaki görüşleri sorgulanmıştır. Çalışmanın sonunda nitel analiz yapılmış olup bulgulara göre Montessori öğretmenleri bütünleştirme eğitimi konusunda kendilerini yeterince eğitimli ve deneyimli bulmadıklarını belirtmiş, ancak bütünleştirme eğitiminin hem engelli hem de engelsiz öğrenciler için faydalı olduğunu düşündüklerini ifade etmiştir. Öte yandan, Montessori öğretmenleri Montessori eğitiminin çocuğun bağımsız bir birey olmasında önemli bir rol oynadığını ifade etmiş, çocukların kendi kararlarını vermelerini teşvik etmenin Montessori anlayışının en önemli noktaları olduğunu belirtmiştir. Ancak engelli öğrenciler açısından değerlendirildiğinde öğretmenlerin çoğu bu özgürlükçü ortamın engelli öğrenciler için dezavantajlar oluşturabileceğini söylemiştir. Öğretmenler, özellikle ağır engelli öğrenciler ya da dikkat dağınıklığı olan ya da otizmli öğrenciler ile çalışırken öğretmenin etkisinin daha yoğun olduğu, yapılandırılmış bir eğitim ortamının çocuğun eğitimi açısından daha iyi olacağını ifade etmiştir.
