Our Program

Little Dreamers is proud to be the first in Aley to adopt the Maria Montessori method. This unique approach helps us offer your children the comprehensive care they need on the physical, emotional, social and cognitive levels.

Children are respected for their individuality and are given the chance to choose the work they want instead of the teacher choosing their work for them. Maria Montessori, an Italian physician, educator and expert on child development, strongly believed that each child has a unique development process and can learn in line with his/her own capacity. Based on this fact, your child's own natural development process will be well-respected and recognized allowing him/her to learn at his/her own pace. He/she will learn while playing and exploring and will be able to acquire knowledge at the right time.

This method allows children to unleash their potentials and discover what they really like. The program also trains them to be self-dependent, disciplined, organized and responsible. It enhances their leadership skills and prepares them to be tomorrow's leaders. Children will learn to respect others and care for them regardless of any discrimination.

The Maria Montessori method of education is child-centered and based on scientific observation of children from birth to adulthood. Every material in the classroom is child-sized and designed to ease the child's learning process through his/her interaction with the environment which allows him/her to respond at any moment to the natural curiosities that exist in all humans and build a solid foundation for life-long learning.

Under this program, children are referred to as "nidos" and teachers are "guides" whose role is to observe children, recognize their sensitive periods, divert their inappropriate behavior to meaningful tasks and prepage the best environment for them to learn without placing unnecessary limitations on them or disturbing their peace.
