A second yurt for the children of the Montessori and Nature School and leisure center in Luisant

“Students learn without necessarily noticing. Indeed, this is one of the axes of the pedagogy of Montessori schools. “Our three pillars here are education, coexistence and ecology,” explains Morgane Planchon, manager and co-founder of the Montessori and Nature school and recreation center in Luisant.

Established two years ago for kindergartens, the school will now open at primary level in September. To do this, she had to set up a new yurt last week, the installation of which was completed on Friday 8 July 2022. It will accommodate 48 students with the ability to accommodate up to 56 students.

“We teach students to do and learn for themselves. We guide them so that they can do it the right way to find the right answer by going to the end of their question.”

“With the dominance of the internet today it is even more important where information can be found immediately, but not always of high quality. This education system allows students to go at their own pace. “The students help each other and pass on the explanations of the answers they found to their classmates. †

Multiplication from Kindergarten

The flipped classroom promotes the role play of students at work in the form of playful workshops. “By going through these activities, the brain is more available to integrate the lessons. They are both relaxed and focused,” explains Morgane Planchon. “Some students already understand the principle of multiplication and division in kindergarten. Manipulation gives meaning to what they do,” she adds.

One of the mothers of the students became a teacher by following the training of the Maria Montessori Higher Institute, the only one approved by the AMI (Association Montessori International). “My son is going to kindergarten in September. Malo can already read, write and can do three-digit addition,” says Marion Grinan.
In Luisant, this school is private, but registered with the Ministry of National Education. “We are being followed for inspections. We follow the common ground of ministry and each activity corresponds to a skill,” describes Morgane Planchon.

Proven benefits and better stress management

Montessori education is not a superficial fad. Indeed, neuroscientific studies prove the benefits of pedagogy on neuronal connections. Two major benefits emerge: acquiring learning to read and coping with stress and conflict. “The brain is much more available when the child is in a state of well-being,” assures Agathe Pauwels, teacher and co-founder of the Luisantaise School.The team of teachers at a meeting during the installation work of the second yurt.

“The rules enable students to be more independent. Everyone feels free to learn as they see fit by following appropriate activities. By becoming more independent, the child gains more self-confidence. “He can present his arguments and deal better with stress and conflict”, sums up the student’s mother. “Malo anticipates his needs and sometimes ours. He can say to us, “I feel like you might get upset, you need to breathe and relax,” she continues.

“Emotional safety, without forcing things, leads to more effective learning”, analyzes one of the six teachers in the teacher team.

The school is also open as a leisure center on Wednesday afternoons and during holidays. In the summer 28 children are welcomed.
