Montessori classrooms place a high value on independent learning.
Students are encouraged to reach their highest potential at their own individual pace. In traditional classrooms, students follow the same lessons — leaving some children behind while others pull ahead.
In Montessori classrooms, students don’t have to keep pace with others. They set their own learning agendas, challenging themselves when they’re ready.
The learning materials first designed by Dr. Montessori encourage young learners to assess their own learning progress and spot errors.
