Sparkles Montessori rose out of a conviction that there is a better way for children to learn. Incorporated in 2003, we have over a decade of experience in caring and nurturing children, staying true to the Montessori method. Sparkles Montessori is a licensed childcare centre duly approved by the Welfare Department of Malaysia.
Here, children's progress is limitless, as they learn at their own pace, and are championed for every emerging skill, led by enthusiastic experts in each topic. We enable every child to have a positive experience of childhood and education, growing into the unique adult he or she can be, with a secure and positive self-image.
Our teacher to children ratio is low with a maximum of 10 children to a Directress. For below two years, it is even lower at 5 children to one childcarer. Our team of Directresses possesses the Early Childhood and Montessori Diplomas besides being trained in Music and Art. The Directresses are also constantly being trained, in-house and at other training centres to be able to provide the best care and education to your children.
The Montessori Method
Maria Montessori (1870 to 1952) was the first woman doctor to graduate from the University Hospital, Rome. The Montessori Method is a method of education that combines a philosophy with a practical approach, based on ideas of freedom for the child, within a structured and carefully-planned environment.
Dr. Montessori suggested that all children are intrinsically motivated, and have an absorbent mind from birth to six years. This absorbent mind gives the child an amazing capacity for absorbing information, concepts and their environment.
Montessori's ideas developed as a result of observing and recording children's behaviour, and responses to apparatus and activities. It is a scientifically-based method that is structured and directed by the teacher in the classroom.
The Montessori experience is an education for life. It is a philosophy of child growth that is established and well proven. The early years from birth to 6 years are the most formative and the Montessori Method helps children to build a strong physical, intellectual, social, emotional and spiritual foundation in preparation for their adulthood.
