About Montessori Method
The Montessori Method emphasizes giving freedom to the child in the learning process. As the stress is on exploring and experimenting, the child’s mind is trained to adopt self-corrective measures. This in turn, leads to the development of the mental discipline. A fruitful fusion of discipline and freedom finally leads to spontaneous constructive activity, thus empowering the child & aiding in the development of a high I.Q.
New Horizon Vidya Mandir follows an activity-based curriculum to develop young minds. The Montessori Method complements the theme-based and activity-based learning exercises conducted both inside and outside the classroom.
