One hundred years ago, Dr. Maria Montessori, an inspirational educator, developed a unique method of education based on research into childhood learning which takes into account the whole child and their place in the community. In today’s world it is more important than ever that children become motivated individuals who are able to develop to their full potential.
Bonkers Beat philosophy shares this vision and integrates many principals and ideas from this progressive approach to Early Childhood Education in every day routines. We believe that all children are responsible and active learners and they are encouraged to develop their life skills and participate in active learning activities including cooking, serving food, cleaning, gardening, watering, sowing, fixing and so on.
The focus on self-realisation through independent activity, the concern with attitude, making use of their scientific powers of observation and reflection and the focus on the educator as the keeper of the environment all echo in the work of informal educators.
