Science & Discovery

The Montessori approach emphasizes hands-on learning and self-discovery, allowing children to develop a deep understanding of scientific concepts on their own.
Science experiments focus on exploration, observation, and fostering a sense of wonder about the natural world. Encourage children to ask questions, make predictions, and discuss their findings. 
A prepared Montessori environment is rich in materials and resources related to science, including child-sized tools, magnifying glasses, magnets, scales, measuring cups, books about nature and animals, plants, and objects for exploration such as shells, rocks, and leaves. Store them in a designated area making them easily accessible to the children when needed.
The science Montessori prepared environment is carefully designed to ignite curiosity and foster a love for scientific exploration.
