WHY THE MONTESSORI IQ CORNER?
Maria Montessori was born in Italy in 1870. She was the first woman in Italy to graduate from the medical school and become a physician. After a short experience in the medical field, she dedicated her work to pedagogy until her death in 1952. She is the creator of the Montessori Method.
The traditional approaches of pre-school institutions, where the transfer of knowledge is solely understood as a one-way process; teacher-to-child. Unlike that, the Montessori Method implies an approach directed to the child, where the teacher has a role of a facilitator or a consultant. It is based on individual approach to each child, with the aim to stimulate the processes of self-forming or self-education.
MISSION AND VISION
The mission of the Private Pre-school Institution Montessori IQ Corner is to become an institution to raise children to be able to face the reality of our life today, using the Montessori method where “love is not a dependence, and discipline is not subordination”.
The vision of a kindergarten is to become the centre of excellence for the Montessori method in Tuzla and Tuzla Canton, as an example of life in the wider community.
The truth about life is safe as gravity: to live completely, we must learn to use things and love people .... not to love things and use people
