About us

Our Child Centric Approach

Dr. Montessori believed that no human being is educated by another person. People teach themselves. A truly educated individual continues learning long after the hours and years spent in a classroom because he or she is motivated from within by a natural curiosity and love for knowledge. She felt therefore, that the goal of early education should not be to fill children with facts from a pre-selected course of studies, but rather to cultivate their own natural desire to learn. Her experiments made the child the centre of education, her program is adapted to the interest and needs of children. As a result, children concentrate with enthusiasm and achieve a real and profound understanding of their work. This intellectual progress is accompanied by emotional growth. The children become harmonious in movement, independent in work and helpful with one another. We at First Step are happy to follow the thought of Maria Montessori.

Why First Step Montessori?

Montessori is education…not a nursery school. The best time to start a child’s education is during the early years… 21/2 to 3 years when most of the child’s intelligence and social characteristics are formed. 50% of the child’s mental development occurs before 4 years of age. At First Step, your child will learn to think in logical patterns and to deal with reality.
Our goal is to stimulate child development emotionally, intellectually, physically towards their full potential. We want children to have the freedom to learn at their own pace in an atmosphere of respect and understanding.
First Step helps children to develop themselves in a contemporary and valuable atmosphere through a process of facilitation.

Montessori – A unique System of Education

The Montessori Method was developed by Dr. Maria Montessori, who was a well known educationist and whose training and experience was broad based and remains unique even today. Her approach to education was scientific and her discoveries were verified through observation and experimentation. According to her, the process of education begins at birth and continues throughout life.

Montessori is a philosophy and method of education which emphasizes on the potential of the young child and which develops this potential by employing specially trained teachers and using special teaching materials.
Children are to be respected as different from adults and as individuals who differ from each other.

The first six years of life are the most important years of a child’s growth when unconscious learning gradually emerges to the conscious level.
