Montessori education is characterized by an emphasis on independence, freedom within limits, and respect for a child’s natural psychological development.
Joyful learning at a young age will allow your child to take that joy and confidence with them to each successive academic level.
In a Montessori environment your child will enjoy their learning experience because they chose the area of study they do for that day. The teacher observes each child’s interests and develops lesson plans to capitalize on their student’s developmental periods. It’s when that process of observation, lesson planning, and implementation occurs, your child progresses faster, joyfully, minus any stress from the learning process.
For the past thirty years I have witnessed Dr. Montessori’s method work time and again for so many different types of children regardless of the child’s learning style. The question to ask is ‘why’ does this method of instruction work so well for so many?
The key to this amazing success is that this method of education adjusts to the needs of the child, not the needs of the environment. This means that your child’s learning style, temperament, and developmental or sensitive periods, are honored within a Montessori classroom. Your child will be drawn to the various academic areas of the classroom based upon their interests.
Choosing an exceptional preschool for your child is one of the first and most impactful academic decisions you can make on your child’s behalf. Choose well and your child’s academic future gets an amazing leg up.
