Why Montessori

Montessori offers an extremely advanced and innovative academic program. The foundation established by the Montessori Method of Education is recognized by teachers, schools and colleges worldwide.

In order to obtain the full benefit of the Montessori experience, the Montessori curriculum should be introduced in the early years of a child’s life (ideally at 18 months of age, but at least by three years of age) and continued at least through six years of age (which includes the child’s Kindergarten year).
However, very few schools such as our group of sister Montessori schools offer an advanced curriculum through an Elementary Montessori Program (6 – 12 years of age, 1st – 6th grades), aimed at gifted and talented children who wish to pursue yet a higher level of learning.

Among a myriad of benefits derived from Montessori education:

• Children learn at their own pace through individualized and specially tailored lessons, thus securing a thorough understanding of the subject, and a solid sense of confidence and achievement.
• Lessons are introduced in stages starting with simple to concrete, so as to allow for a comfortable learning pace and instill a sense of success. Throughout the following years, the lessons are then repeated and reintroduced with added levels of abstraction and complexity, without the child being aware it, thereby strengthening the child’s independence, self-confidence and self-esteem.
• The curriculum is organized into overlapping rather than individualized subjects. This approach enables children to study the various aspects and levels of a particular topic over extended periods of time, thus cementing its understanding and avoiding mere memorization.
• Multi-age class groups allow for advanced cross-learning and thorough socialization.
