Your child learns at his own rate. He is neither held back nor pushed forward according to the learning rates of other students.
Your child learns how to focus and concentrate. One of Maria Montessori’s goals was to teach children how to concentrate. This is one of the foundation skills for learning.
Montessori accommodates all learning styles.
Your child will master the important life skill of being a self-directed learner. Montessori’s aim is to nurture the inner motivation of the child while allowing the opportunity for the fullest possible exploration of his or her interests.
Your child will achieve independence by learning how to take care of herself – her body, her belongings and her environment. Montessori understands that at the heart of every child is a healthy drive toward independence.
A Montessori classroom is a place where children learn order. This provides the sense of security and comfort they need to become self-directed.
Your child will be treated with respect and dignity.
A multi-disciplinary approach is taken in regard to your child’s interests. Montessori recognizes that when a child’s interests are involved, any subject becomes fascinating.
Montessori teaches children how to learn instead of just what to learn. It instills in them a life-long love of learning, which prepares them to successfully go in any direction their skills and interest may take them.
