Here’s what you’ll find in a Montessori school

In a Montessori class, children engage in interactive learning in an environment carefully prepared by an educator trained to work with children of specific age groups. In classes of mixed ages, children are given lessons by the teacher. They are then able to make discoveries about language, mathematics, geography, geometry, art and music. The highly social atmosphere of this environment stems from a unique combination of freedom and structure founded on respect. A Montessori education fosters the fullest development of a child’s potential and provides a foundation for a life of joyful and successful learning.
