At each level, Montessori programs are designed to address the developmental characteristics normal to children in that stage.

Montessori classes are organized to encompass a two- or three-year age span, which allows younger students the stimulation of older children, who in turn benefit from serving as role models. Each child learns at their own pace and will be ready for any given lesson in her own time, not on the teacher.

Dr. Montessori believed that teachers should focus on the child as a person, not on the daily lesson plan. Montessori teachers lead children to ask questions, think for themselves, explore, investigate, and discover. Their ultimate objective is to help their students to learn independently and retain the curiosity, creativity, and intelligence with which they were born. As we said in an earlier chapter, Montes-sori teachers don?t simply present lessons; they are facilitators, mentors, coaches, and guides.

Children who are easily overstimulated, or those who tend to be overly aggressive, may be examples of children who might not adapt as easily to a Montessori program. Each situation is different, and it is best to work with the schools to determine a right fit.

Just because the Montessori program is highly individualized does not mean that students can do whatever they want. Like all children, Montessori students live within a cultural context that involves the mastery of skills and knowledge that are considered essential.

In Montessori schools, students learn to collaborate with each other rather than mindlessly compete. Students discover their own innate abilities and develop a strong sense of independence, self-confidence, and self-discipline. In an atmosphere in which children learn at their own pace and compete only against themselves, they learn not to be afraid of making mistakes. They quickly find that few things in life come easily, and they can try again without fear of embarrassment

Each situation has to be evaluated individually to ensure that the program can successfully meet a given child’s needs and learning style.

What makes Montessori unique?

Individualized Learning: Children learn at their own pace, following their interests with guidance from teachers.
Hands-on Exploration: Specially designed materials let children learn by doing, making concepts come alive.
Mixed-Age Classrooms: Younger children learn from older ones, and older children develop leadership skills. This creates a sense of community.
Focus on the Whole Child: Montessori goes beyond academics, developing independence, self-confidence, and a love of learning.
How does the teacher’s role differ?

Traditional Teacher: Delivers lessons to the whole class and focuses on standardized testing.
Montessori Teacher: Guides and observes, preparing the environment, and supporting individual learning journeys.
