Why Concentration Is Key!

Joanne Kaya


Have you ever noticed how happy and satisfied you feel when you concentrate on something for a long time and finally finish it? That feeling of accomplishment is one of the many benefits of concentration, and it’s something that the Montessori method emphasizes in children’s development.

In the Montessori approach, concentration helps build important qualities of character, like self-esteem and self-discipline. When children concentrate on a task, they feel a sense of inner satisfaction that boosts their confidence and helps them stay focused. And once they finish the task, they feel refreshed and become more aware of their surroundings. This awareness helps them develop empathy and social skills, which are essential for building strong relationships and a sense of community.

After working for many years in early childhood education, I noticed there was something missing with childrens learning. Whilst living in Japan, I walked into a Montessori classroom for the first time. That was my ‘hallelujah’ moment. This is was every child needs!.
