DID YOU KNOW…
There are over 20,000 Montessori schools world wide, with countries even using the method as their public education system.
Montessori is one of the fastest growing forms of education for young children in the world.
Most of a child’s day at a Montessori school is spent in self chosen work. Classroom design, materials, and daily routines support the individual’s emerging “self-regulation” (ability to ducate one’s self, and to think about what one is learning), toddlers through adolescents. When a lesson has been given, the child has the freedom to choose, to move, or to repeat an exercise.
The children reinforce their own learning by repetition of work and the internal feeling of success.
The children progress at their own pace and successfully complete the self-correcting exercises. They develop confidence in their ability to understand their achievement.
There are no comparison to other children in a Montessori program. Each child advances at his or her own rhythm through the curriculum. The mixed-age group creates self-confidence for the older ones by being able to be a role model and help the younger ones.
