Why choose a Montessori School?

As the summer holidays come to an end, we turn our thoughts to the new school year.

For some it is a return to familiar ground, and we welcome them back to our care but for some parents and students the Montessori setting is a whole new experience.

We are frequently asked by parents and interested members of the public, What happens in a Montessori environment that makes it different from a traditional classroom setting? Why should I choose to send my children to a Montessori school?

Over the next few posts we will highlight the core aspects of a Montessori environment which make it a unique personal learning experience for your child.

To begin, this video from The American Montessori Society provides a wonderful overview.

Enjoy the video and feel free to comment below, or contact us with any questions you may have.
