The Montessori Method, which is the core basis of the preschool programs at Villa Montessori Preschool Columbus, was developed by Dr. Maria Montessori. The Montessori method has revolutionized early childhood education with the application of an approach that is very different from the traditional way of teaching. By carefully observing children, Dr. Montessori came to the conclusion that young children have a natural desire to explore their environment and learn from it. Using these observations, she scientifically developed educational materials, which are project-oriented, hands-on, and are capable of satisfying the curiosity of children regarding their environment. This is very different from the traditional way of teaching where the teacher simply feeds information to the children, who are then required to memorize it.

The Villa Montessori Preschool Columbus classrooms are carefully designed to ensure that the preschool children are able to work independently and experience the joy of self-discovery. Meanwhile, the teachers act as guides for the young kids, introducing them to a wide range of available educational materials from which they can freely select those that they like. This is in contrast to the conventional learning system where teachers pretty much lecture their students. Lessons are also provided, but the purpose is different. It is to enable the children to discover for themselves the answers to certain questions in their mind, through the auto-didactic or self-correcting materials that have been placed in the Montessori classroom.
Meanwhile, the preschool has also integrated the Reggio Emilia method, which was developed to help children hone their higher critical thinking skills. The children need such skills to come up with the questions that they would like to ask to allow them to learn a number of basic principles. Again, this is in contrast to the conventional teaching method where the children are simply asked to memorize certain information. The advantage of this method is that the children’s creativity and critical thinking are developed at an early age.
In the Reggio Emilia approach, the teachers also play a different role compared to their role as lecturers in the traditional classroom environment. In this environment, they are actually collaborators and co-learners with their students. Their focus is to discover the real interests of each specific child in order to guide them so the students experience deeper learning on the subjects they are most interested in. In this approach, the classroom environment also functions as a teacher. This is because the young students are free to explore the various educational materials that have been placed in the classroom. As a result, hands-on projects fill the shelves of the classroom. The children are thus able to learn the vital principles of the subjects they are interested in.
