As this video points out, not all Montessori schools follow the Montessori curriculum and practices. This leaves the difficult job of identifying the right school to you – the parents and guardians of the children.
We recommend that you take your time to visit a few schools to observe their classrooms in action, paying particular attention to teacher-children interactions to assess the skills of the staff as well as if they truly follow the Montessori method before selecting one suitable for your child.
Reading about Montessori education before your visit will help you ask relevant questions to understand if they are an authentic Montessori school and whether they actually pay attention to each child’s individualistic development. You may also review our blogs categorized under Montessori Topics to get a good understanding of the elements of Montessori education.
