What Sets Montessori Apart?
- Emphasis on cognitive development and independence
- Mainly individual instruction
- Mixed age groups
- Children work at their own pace
- Environment and method encourage self discipline and respect
"I consider it a crime...to require the child to memorise that which he has not been able to visualise...The secret of good teaching is to regard the child 's intelligence as a fertile field in which seeds may be sown,to grow under the heat of flaming imagination." -Maria Montessori
