Lucy Napitupulu has an E.C (Early Childhood) and an Infant/Toddler Certificate, both International Montessori Teaching Diplomas. Lucy also has a Masters in Science. Lucy believes that in a Montessori setting, children have the opportunity to explore activities that interest them and satisfy any ‘sensitive period’ they are experiencing at that time. They will learn more with no pressure from an adult. The Teacher, or Directress, acts merely as a guide allowing children to develop naturally at their own pace. They become independent in the learning process.
