Doku koleji Montessori School provides early childhood education that builds a strong foundation for confident, compassionate participation in the world. We nurture each child’s unique gifts, passion for learning, and independence. Specific teaching methods must be tailored to each specific age, the method of education we adopt gives importance to the child’s specific age and accordingly we adjust the learning method, moreover, since the study is done in small classrooms of up to 15 children in the classroom, this allows us to have a thorough look at each child and child. Addressing the unique and individual needs of each.
When we say education for the whole child we mean that human is not just a thinking head and not just a heart feeling and not just an active body but all those things and more, everything together, therefore the whole child’s needs must be addressed, Just for instance : Emotional by art, Thinking by math and our physical body by healthy foods and sports activities.
