OUR PHILOSOPHY BUSY BEES provides the natural environment required for children to explore, learn and gain knowledge in the Montessori way. Prepared environment, Developmentally appropriate materials and Unforced guidance by experienced and qualified teachers , makes the learning process at BUSY BEES more natural and self-motivated. BUSY BEES subscribes to the Dr. Maria Montessori teaching philosophy. The first duty of an education is to stir up life, but leave it free to develop. It is necessary for the teacher to guide the child without letting him feel her presence too much, so that she may always be ready to supply the desired help, but may never be the obstacle between the child and his experience. Our environment itself will teach the child, if every error he makes is manifest to him, without the intervention of a parent or teacher, who should remain a quiet observer of all that happens. The role of the teacher is part of the prepared environment. Teachers are specially trained in the Montessori philosophy of child oriented education that respects each and every child, and bases its guidance on careful observation of each student. “This system in which a child is constantly moving objects with his hands and actively exercising his senses, also takes into account a child's special aptitude for mathematics. When they leave the material, the children very easily reach the point where they wish to write out the operation. They thus carry out an abstract mental operation and acquire a kind of natural and spontaneous inclination for mental calculations."
