The Prepared Environment
“Education should no longer be mostly imparting knowledge, but must take a new path, seeking the release of human potentials.”
At BMS we prepare a learning environment that is engaging, enlightening and the children independently choose their own activities, which are designed to teach daily living skills, from cooking to sensorial acuity, numeration and arithmetic, as well as writing skills and reading. There is a progression of activities which require focused movement, balanced body coordination and high levels of concentration. Among which are “walking on the line” and “silence game” where children are invited and encouraged to be physically still and focus on the objects in the classroom environment, taking these children to the highest level of discipline and self-control.
