A Montessori based education helps prepare children for a lifetime of learning and success in school. Children at Klein-Spring Montessori learn to love and care for each other, their environment, and themselves.
Our classrooms include children of different ages because they learn better from their peers. The youngest children in class look up to the oldest children and learn from them. The older children enjoy being the role models and teaching the younger classmates. As the children grow and develop, they are able to do more and in time, the youngest become the oldest in the class and take over the role of leader within their group.
The Montessori method encourages children to explore and learn at their own pace. We have a prepared environment that’s age-appropriate within which the child may choose a work that’s interesting to them. The teacher presents a lesson one on one and the child then works to master that activity. All of our works within the Montessori classroom are designed to teach life skills or educational foundations that the child will build upon over the next years.
The final difference you’ll note is how quiet and peaceful a Montessori environment (classroom) is even when it’s full of children. The kids are actively engaged and learning but they’re very quiet and respectful of their classroom, peers, and teachers.
