Our Teaching & Learning Philosophy
Montessori’s trained guides carefully direct students along a path of discovery where they gain knowledge independently. Montessori Bali provides the unique environments, materials and methods that optimize social, self-expressive and academic growth for each stage of a child’s development.
A joyful life is an individual creation that cannot be copied from a recipe.MIHALY CSIKSZENTMIHALYI
During this time, the whole brain is remodelled. Unused connections are pruned away, others are strengthened and new connections can be made. This is a chance for the child to remake themselves. What young people spend time, energy and focus on during this period of development often becomes hardwired into their adult brain.
This means that parents and teachers need to be thoughtful and aware of how they can ensure that what the adolescent is doing will lead to a healthy and positive lifestyle as an adult.
The pruning and remodelling starts at the back of the brain, or the amygdala. This is the emotional centre of the brain and it is why teenagers often seem more emotional than children in the six- to 12-year-old plane of development. The changes in the brain and the hormones flooding the body due to puberty taken together makes this potentially a very volatile time for a young person.
