When you enter the calm, peaceful environment of a Montessori classroom,
it may seem quite different from what you’ve come to expect from traditional
educational environments. Here are a few differences you may notice.
Teacher introduces activities to children and then lets them pursue their own interests, while observing their progress.
Teachers work one-on-one with children in order to ensure that they fully grasp tasks and activities.
Once children have seen the teacher demonstrate an activity at least once, they are encouraged to pursue that activity on their own, to work on figuring it out for themselves.
The Toddler and Preschool classrooms allows for 2 age groupings (1.5 – 3yr and 3 – 6yrs), so children of various skill levels can work alongside each other, and learning takes place at all different experience levels which is not limited by age.
In the mixed-age environment, the opportunity exists for older children who have “mastered” activities to share their knowledge with younger children; learning is enhanced by this positive exchange of experiences.
Uninterrupted work times allow for a level of immersion that is difficult to achieve when lessons are timed and scheduled.
