Montessori Learning Principles of OCCI

“The first essential for the child’s development is concentration.”
–Maria Montessori

Last week at our first Parent Education Night of the calendar year, Primary level parents learned about the the importance of the Montessori learning principles of OCCI: Order, Concentration, Coordination, and Independence. This week, teachers in our Primary classrooms captured special moments of deep concentration during morning work time. Guided lessons and purposeful materials during Montessori work time, particularly in Practical Life, are designed to develop life skills and the confidence to take on new challenges.
