Montessori Education, What's the difference?
Some Comparisons of Montessori Education with Traditional Education
A Montessori program is based on self-direction, non-competitive and cooperative activities that help a child develop a strong self image, high levels of academic and social competence, and the confidence to face challenges with optimism. Encouraged to make decisions from an early age, Montessori educated children are problem solvers who make appropriate choices, manage their time and work well with others. They exchange ideas and discuss work freely. The positive communication skills build the foundation for negotiating new settings.
