How to Choose the Right Preschool: 10 Benefits of a Montessori Education

When deciding where to enroll your child in preschool, there are numerous variables that play a roll in choosing the right fit for your child. A couple of factors that might affect your decision are the following…

  • Distance from your home or work
  • Cost of the preschool
  • If the school accredited or not
  • Rules and regulations
  • Teacher to student ratio
  • Good and bad reviews

Montessori education is a great option for your child’s preschool education. Maria Montessori felt that the education system was in desperate need for reform in her day, just as we see the same need for reform in our educational system today. Her objective was to develop the complete personality of the child and her system is based on a strong belief in the impulsive working of the human intellect. Her three primary principles are observation, individual liberty and preparation of the environment. Some of the key benefits of Montessori education are as follows…

  1. Child sets his or her own learning pace as the teacher assists
  2. Emphasis on cognitive and social development
  3. Group and individual instruction
  4. Grouping encourages children to teach and help other students
  5. Child chooses his or her own work with input from the teacher
  6. Teacher has unobtrusive role in class with smaller class sizes
  7. Child discovers his or her own concepts from self-teaching materials
  8. Multi-sensory materials are used for physical exploration
  9. Child can work where he or she chooses and has the option to move around
  10. Child reinforces his or her own learning by repetition of work and internal feelings of success
