Wadi Montessori School serves Kozhikode and Malappuram districts with high quality, comprehensive education that fosters love of learning and addresses the whole child academically, emotionally, and socially. It is one of the latest initiatives of Islahiaya Association under Wadi Rahma English School. The system of education we follow in the school is the refined version of Dr. Maria Montessori ‘s method with customized additions for optimization of the child’s personality. At its heart, the  method emphasizes independence, freedom within limits, and it ensures respect for the child. It is a child-centered educational approach based on scientific observations of children from birth to adulthood. In our classrooms children make creative choices in their learning, while the classroom and the teacher offer age-appropriate activities to guide the process. Classrooms are beautifully crafted environments designed to meet the needs of children in a specific age range. We impart experiential learning in this type of classroom which lead to a deeper understanding of language, mathematics, science, music, social interactions and much more. The classrooms are secular in nature, although the Montessori educational method can be integrated successfully into a faith-based program. As such we include an additional language-Arabic , along with values and moral education. Every material in our Montessori classroom supports an aspect of child development, creating a match between the child’s natural interests and the available activities. Children can learn through their own experience and at their own pace. They can respond at any moment to the natural curiosities that exist in all humans and build a solid foundation for life-long learning.

Benefits of Wadi Montessori

We encourage individualism and self-directed learning to create a greater sense of self confidence in the child and willingness to explore his environment. Our children learn the importance and are encouraged to respect others, classroom materials and their environment. A mixed-age setting cultivates a sense of community as there are no awards or competition within the classroom. Older children take pride in working with younger children to finish activities without adult assistance, if necessary. We encourage and promote the child to gain these traits: concentration, order, coordination and independence. Learning is a “hands-on” and activity based approach that emphasizes concrete learning with self-correcting materials. Compared to various other forms of traditional education, our graduates often score higher than their public and private school peers in all aspects of testing including: language (reading and comprehension), mathematics, meaningful social interactions with peers, stronger understanding of complex subject matter and overall respect for their environmental surroundings. The method is meant to help children with all different types of academic abilities. In line with the actual system of the method, we follow and cater through five important areas through our well set environment;

Practical Life, Sensorial, Language, Mathematics, and Culture
