The Montessori Method of teaching provides children with a sensorial and hands on learning experience. Maria Montessori believed that the more senses are used during exploration and discovery leads to a deeper understanding of the concepts taught. In Appleseed Montessori’s Distance Learning Program, the teachers prepare carefully designed teacher-made materials as well as miniature versions of Montessori materials for the students to use in class. The school also provides a set of manipulative toys, puzzles, building blocks and the like. A Starter Kit with some school supplies and materials together with weekly kits are sent out regularly to provide our students with the things they’ll need on a normal basis. Being such tactile learners, it is the school’s priority to cater to our students desire to learn with their hands and carry this out even on an online platform. We are passionate about carrying on all Montessori principles and providing our students with the necessary materials is a vital part of what the online program offers.
