It is difficult for those who are unfamiliar with the Montessori method to understand the essence of this teaching, which is letting children be guided by their nature to learn, respecting them as individuals. Sometimes the simplest thing can become complicated to explain, and yet when we see it in action we understand it perfectly.
An example of this is the video that we want to show you today, which is created by a Canadian school, Dundas Valley Montessori School. Here we can see a 5-minutes summary of how the first three hours in a typical class at a Montessori school are. First, we see the way guides welcome every student, then we can see the autonomy students reflect when choosing their activities, collecting materials, interacting with other students, making their own breakfast and finally, the video also shows how they enjoy nature.
