What is a Montessori School All About?

The Montessori Method of Education is a unique approach to learning. Children learn through an environment that is carefully prepared by the teacher. The teacher's role in the Montessori classroom is to guide and instruct the children in the Montessori Curriculum. Children work independently, as well as in small groups, to stimulate their interest and learning. The Montessori teacher works to challenge the child's natural curiosity and facilitate a better understanding of the world.

The Montessori classroom is typically comprised of mixed-age groups, which offers multiple benefits to children. In a Montessori system, children progress at their own pace without the grade level stigma. Younger children learn from the older children, who are given the opportunity to further their subject mastery, by modeling and mentoring the younger children.

Research shows that Montessori children are better prepared for life than children who receive a traditional type of education. Montessori children outperform their peers academically, cognitively, and socially.
