Montessori Theory: Reasons Why Your Child Embraces Repetition & Develops Will in Montessori
The Importance of Repetition in a Montessori School
The term repetition may seem a very common and normal word that means to do something again and again but if looked deep into it, then it becomes a very unique experience especially for a Montessori Childhood environment. When a child does a task repeatedly, that does not mean that he/she is doing it to fulfill the purpose of repetition but in fact the child is doing that task again and again to enhance his/her skill and making it better than before every single time. What the child expects in return is a positive environment that motivates the child in fulfilling the purpose of repetition in their own way with freedom. This is exactly what the Montessori school should provide their children every time.
Interference in a Child’s work
When there is a child who is busy doing his/her work, playing or doing any other productive work, then the parents or the adults should make sure that they take a small break before interfering in their work. The children in Montessori Preschool get the desired space for their work which literally helps them concentrate more and have the courage to perfect it with the right confidence. A child in Montessori Childhood Preschool environment develops such working etiquette faster with desired environment provided to them.
Brain development and Repetition
When we link the term of repetition with the term of brain development in terms of the children in the Montessori Childhood Preschool environment, we do get a very fascinating result as the context of repetition is very different in brain development. Repetition is not just only about becoming an expert in a skill for a Montessori school child, it is much more than that. When the child repeats or practices the work, then he/she is increasing their opportunity to become successful or to succeed. Not only that, the child learns how to fix errors and make small changes in their task to make it better every single time. It is as if the child is going with a different approach each time.
These all are only some of the key factors that make the child who is studying in a Montessori Preschool develop such a will in Montessori and also embrace the term of repetition. All of the schools should make sure that they are providing the right environment to their children so that the children can enhance their skills with the right productive mindset.
