THE MONTESSORI ADVANTAGE
Montessori VS Conventional Schools
Initiate independence, leadership and strong self-discipline
Self-motivated, lifetime love of learning
The Montessori school education is based on the principle that a child learns best when the social environment supports his or her own unique development. It was for this purpose that Dr. Maria Montessori created a curriculum and learning materials that provide a wealth of experiences contributing to the growth of each individual learner.
A Montessori classroom is multi-aged. This allows the child to work in an atmosphere of cooperative learning, peer teaching, and leadership development, along with social and emotional growth. Respect for one’s self, for others, and for the environment, are the foundation of classroom rules.
” The education of even a small child, therefore, does not aim at preparing him for school, but for life.”
— Maria Montessori
