important period of life is not the age of university studies but the first
one, the period from birth to age six. For this is the time when man's
intelligence itself, his greatest implement is being formed. But not only his
intelligence: the full totality of his psychic powers… at no other age has the
child greater need of an intelligent help and any obstacle that impedes his
creative work will lessen the chance he/she has of achieving perfection."
- Maria Montessori, creator and founder of the Montessori Method.
World over, the Montessori method of education is recognised as one which nurtures self-education through self-discovery and self-correction with purposeful work to develop the five senses in children through multi – sensory materials that develop specific skills.
This blends in beautifully with the philosophy and ethos of Vivek High School which imparts education by providing opportunities for self-discovery, multiple channels for self-expression and a larger structured environment which encourages independence within it.
This pedagogy is essentially a model of human development geared towards nurturing children into more peaceful, respectful and thereby helping to create a gentler, kinder world.
