Shoelaces learn to be tied, but knots happen. Liquids get spilled during pouring. Spooning exercises might run amok at the beginning with beans, marbles, or other items strewn on the floor, but that’s okay in a Montessori classroom. It is not considered “failure”, but instead an opportunity to practice and refine skills while taking responsibility for restoring order and caring for the environment.
Montessori classrooms provide a safe environment for learning without fear of embarrassment or reprimand. The “oops” factor is an expected and necessary part of the learning process. Students learn that it is not always possible to be the best at everything when they first begin, but when they are able to measure their efforts against their own sense of self, there is a greater internal satisfaction and joy in the accomplishments.
We, at the Hazard Lions Club Montessori School, want you to feel that
your child is safe with us in a learning environment where
experimentation is welcomed and necessary. It’s an environment that
expects “messes”, but teaches, practices, and encourages the proper
procedure for self-responsibility.
