Director, Littleton Montessori School
What is Montessori education?
Dr. Maria Montessori, the first woman physician in Italy, founded Montessori education in 1907. She developed her educational method after many years of scientific observations of how children learn. She observed that, given the right environment, children are very good in teaching themselves. So she designed a “prepared environment” where children could freely choose from a number of developmentally appropriate activities. Her education methods have flourished over the century and are now recognized literally all over the world. Her educational methods span ages from birth to adolescence.
If my child is left to choose his/her own activities, will he/she tend to do the same thing every day or simply do nothing?
No. The teachers are trained to observe children’s activities. When a child has mastered a skill, the teacher will give the child a lesson that is more challenging, considering the age and interest of each child. Because the environment is so stimulating and exciting, children seldom “do nothing.” There are hundreds of prepared lessons for the child to choose from every day.
How do children transition from Montessori to traditional schools?
It has been our experience, and the experience of virtually all Montessori schools, that the transition is very smooth. The brief adjustment period is no more than the adjustment that occurs when transferring from one traditional to another traditional school. Montessori alumni typically score well on the standardized tests and consistently show enhanced ability for following directions, independent thinking, and adapting to new situations. Teachers often comment on the leadership abilities of the child that comes to them via a Montessori program, as well as their overall depth of knowledge.
How well does the Montessori education prepare the children for success in later life?
Research has shown that Montessori children are well prepared for later life academically, socially and emotionally. In a Montessori class, children are engaged in activities which interest them and that they learn from. This engagement, or desire and love of learning is fostered and internalized by the children, leading them to be lifelong learners and be engaged in life after school. In today’s world, being able to “think outside the box” is a big component to success and a Montessori education encourages the creative and critical thinking that creates this trait.
