Why Montessori?


The goal of both Montessori and traditional preschool programs is the same: to provide learning experiences for children. The biggest differences lie in the kind of learning experiences each school provides and the methods they use to accomplish this goal. Montessori educators believe these differences are important because they help shape how children learn, their work habits and future attitudes toward themselves, others and the world around them.
