About Vilnius Montessori pre-school
Welcome and thank you for visiting Vilnius Montessori Pre-School website!
Vilnius Montessori Pre-School comprises two locations. Each hosts facilities for casa communities for children aged 3-6 and toddler communities for children aged 1½ / 3.
Vilnius Montessori Pre-school is based on the educational philosophy developed by Dr. Maria Montessori and it strives to implement the methods created by this all-time-remarkable educator. In practice our pre-school translates this to ‘eliciting the joy of learning from within children.
VMS works to create an environment for learning where children will feel safe, happy, appreciated, and encouraged to focus deeply on their activities. Dr. Montessori believed that patterns of concentration and exactness established in early childhood also produce a confident and competent learner in later years.
VMS promotes strong moral and human values. Mixed age is a very important factor of the Montessori classroom. This provides children with possibilities to discover ways of functioning in a real social group. In addition, a great deal of knowledge reinforcement results from this interaction of different aged children. “Our schools are alive. To understand what the older ones are doing fills the little ones with enthusiasm. The older ones are happy to be able to teach what they know.There are no inferiority complexes, but everyone achieves a healthy normality though the mutual exchange of spiritual energy. ” (Montessori, The Absorbent Mind).
