What is Montessori Education?
Montessori education more than anything is about understanding and aiding the natural process of child growth and learning. The principles, methods, and materials used in Montessori education for over a hundred years are scientifically supported, researched and time-tested, plus based on common sense.
Understanding Montessori: A Guide for Parents seeks to help parents see the power that Montessori education holds for their children at all ages.
Understanding Montessori draws on the author’s over thirty years of working with children to affirm what neuropsychologists are beginning to discover:
Authentic Montessori education is the most powerful way for our children to learn.
Research shows that children learn faster and more easily in a properly prepared Montessori classroom than in traditional schools. Montessori classrooms all over the world have proven that when implemented correctly Dr. Maria Montessori’s philosophy works for children at all socio-economic circumstances and levels of ability. Montessori education offers an unmatched complement of principles, methods and materials that work with the child’s developing mind in strong and compelling ways.
