Frequently Asked Questions!
What does Montessori-Inspired mean?
Maria Montessori developed a way of learning that allows kids and students to learn at their own pace using experimentation. We use these principles in our classroom to help students explore and learn what they are ready for. It is self guided with teachers there to help them process, learn, and be successful.
Why is it better than a traditional classroom?
Most traditional classrooms have a set curriculum that they have to get through, moving on even if some kids might need more time on the subject. Also, many traditional classrooms teach writing and reading by doing repetition. Writing a over and over again. This works for some kids, but all kids are different. In a Montessori based school system, kids often learn how to read and write at a much faster pace than regular schools. They learn the skills to write longer before they actually get a pencil in their hand and start trying to write letters. It’s an amazing way to allow them to feel, touch, explore, and understand in away that makes sense to them.
