Looking For A Montessori School Near Me?

There are several things that a person needs to look at when they are choosing a Montessori school:

  1. Professional affiliations. It is very important to make sure that the school is accredited with the Montessori organizations. Some of these organizations might include the Association Montessori Internationale, American Montessori Society, and the International Montessori Council. Even though this is not a requirement for the school, it is definitely something that you are going to want to look for. This is because it shows professional integrity and a standard of excellence that you want the school to have.
  2. Design of the classroom should be unique. Therefore, there should be a personal style inside of each individual classroom. You definitely want the classroom to have all of the learning materials to be organized enough so that it is easy for the students to get to them. Most of the time, there will not be any desks inside of the classroom. Instead there will be work spaces that are set up to be cozy and are painted with colors that are more muted inside of the bright colors normally used.
  3. Students should be a variety of different ages. But it is very important that there is only about three years difference between the ages of the students in the classroom. Most of the time, the younger students are going to look at the older students as role models. These schools are known for their independence because the students can walk around the whole classroom no matter how old they are. Therefore, the students do not have to ask when they need to go to the restroom or eat a snack.
  4. The teacher should be an observer. This means that the teacher is not going to be at the head of the classroom but they are going to be moving around the classroom to be a guide to the students. Therefore, she will know each learning style that the child has so that the activities inside of the classroom can be tailored to each individual student. New materials will be introduced in smaller groups instead of the whole class so that everyone will have a chance to learn at their own pace.
  5. Education of the whole child. It needs to be a place where the differences in each child will be valued. Most of the more traditional classrooms will focus on the cognitive development of the student, but inside of this school all developments of the child will be the focus of the school. This means that the student is going to be completely nurtured. A student should always be engaged in the activities that are going on inside of the classroom whether it be working together or independently on a project.
