Children develop close relationships with their homeroom teachers who monitor their progress very carefully, and who are also responsible for their specialist Bangla programme. From the beginning children are also introduced to a range of specialist teachers for the following subjects:
DPS STS School Dhaka is the only school in Bangladesh with a fully-furnished Montessori Lab for the development among the students of the Pre-Primary Programme.
Montessori is a specialised form of education in which children are given a safe and clean environment, with various props for facilitating self-learning and collaborative learning. This educational pedagogy was conceptualised and pioneered by an Italian education specialist Dr. Maria Montessori.
Montessori education is based on five principles according to educational agency Supply Desk:
Respect for the child: Respect is shown for children by not interrupting their concentration, by giving pupils the freedom to make choices, to do things for themselves, and to learn for themselves. DPS STS Teachers model respect for all students as well as peaceful conflict resolution, and must learn to observe without judgement.
The Absorbent Mind: Simply by living, children are constantly learning from the world around them. Through their senses children constantly absorb information from their world. They then make sense of it because they are thinking beings.
Sensitive Periods: Montessori pedagogy believes there are certain periods during which children are more ready to learn certain skills. These are known as sensitive periods, and last only as long as is necessary for the child to acquire the skills. The order in which sensitive periods occur (i.e. a sensitive period for writing) as well as the timing of the period varies for each child. Through observation, DPS STS Montessori teachers must identify sensitive periods in their students, and provide the resources for children to flourish during this time.
The Prepared Environment: The Montessori method suggests that children learn best in an environment that has been prepared to enable them to do things for themselves. Always child-centred, the learning environment should promote freedom for children to explore materials of their choice. DPS STS Teachers prepare the learning environment by making materials and experiences available to children in an orderly and independent way. Therefore, the Montessori lab of DPS STS School Dhaka has a myriad of props for facilitating learning, including designated collaborative spaces, props for learning Maths independently, arts and crafts zones, and writing spaces.
Auto education: Auto education, or self-education, is the concept that children are capable of educating themselves. This is one of the most important beliefs in the Montessori method. DPS STS Montessori teachers provide the environment, the inspiration, the guidance and the encouragement for children to educate themselves.
Independent, active learning is crucial for all children and in these early years this happens when they are playing. Play develops a wide range of vital physical skills and is the key to a child’s gross motor skills development, both at this age and for later development. We believe that a child who plays well, learns well.
