Why Montessori?

Overall, what makes this method of learning so different compared to other conventional forms of education today, is that the teacher does not stand in front of the class and teach each child the same lesson all at once. Each child is allowed to learn at their own rhythm in a way that allows them to feel as though they are in fact not learning or being taught. Children gain a sense of independence, curiosity, and esteem that is only accomplished through Dr. Montessori’s methodology.
