Many parents who choose Montessori for their preschoolers want their children to continue Montessori through kindergarten if it is available. Some parents look upon Montessori as a preschool preparation for public kindergarten. These parents feel a Montessori school is a place where a very young child can be taken care of until he/she is old enough for public school. However, children who don’t continue Montessori through kindergarten children actually miss a very fruitful part of the Montessori experience. It will be helpful to begin by observing four-year olds in the Montessori classroom. Parents should seek answers to the following questions: 1) Is my child comfortable and happy? 2) How does he/she interact with other children? 3) Does he/she choose his/her own activities? 4...
Underpinning of Montessori
The basic belief underpinning the Montessori Method was the belief that the essential factor in the Montessori outlook is that it is not the adult who creates the child; it is the child who, through his experiences, creates a human being (Seldin, 1996, p. 8). Dr. Montessori felt that this ability has to be nurtured from birth on. First, it is developed in the family, then at school, and later in life. What usually happens is that children are told what to do, and they learn what the adult tells them to do. This is what many traditional preschool and daycare centers do. This is not listening to inner prompting, and may cause their ability to atrophy. Then, they often end up in a trap that is very difficult to escape. At Arbor View Montessori we teach that if people love what they...

Early Childhood Education
In The Absorbent Mind, Dr. Montessori wrote, "The most important period of life is not the age of university studies, but the first one, the period from birth to the age of six. For that is the time when man's intelligence itself, his greatest implement is being formed. But not only his intelligence; the full totality of his psychological powers… At no other age has the child a greater need of an intelligent help, and any obstacle that impedes his creative work will lessen the chance he has of achieving perfection." The Montessori approach to early childhood education is a wonderful way to introduce problem solving both for a young child's brain and help work on their motor skills as well. At traditional preschools, or daycare Children often learn through play and through...
How to Select a Montessori School
