Vilnius Montessori pre-school is based on the educational philosophy developed by Dr. Maria Montessori and it strives to implement the methods created by this all-time-remarkable educator. In practice our pre-school translates this to ‘eliciting the joy of learning from within children. Between birth and 6 years of age children construct their personalities, which makes this period of development extremely important. Children at this age are thirsty for knowledge about their immediate environment. VMS works to create an environment for learning where children will feel safe, happy, appreciated, and encouraged to focus deeply on their activities. Dr. Montessori believed that patterns of concentration and exactness established in early childhood also produce a confident and competent learner in later years.
