We believe a parent’s role is to act as a guide so your child can learn for himself through exploration.
In Dr. Maria Montessori words, ‘education is acquired not by listening to words but by experiences in the environment.’
We adults facilitate experiential learning by choosing what we put in the environment, observing our child’s development and introducing things that meet their developmental needs.
Experiential learning helps your child better understand concepts, better retain information and later to successfully apply that knowledge.
At Monti&Me Purposeful Play means building babies’ brain through play. Talking with your baby is one of the very best things you can do to help build his developing brain. Hearing lots of words early is proven to expand babies’ mental capacities. The more you talk with him, the more he understands and the more he will learn to say by himself.
Try to encourage only doing one thing at a time to help with the development of focus and concentration. This means not interrupting verbally when baby is concentrating in play.
Be warned –in practice it’s much harder than you think.
As your little one get's older, purposeful play looks like practical life activities around the home. Your little helper will want to do everything the grown ups are doing. This is how they learn!
