Montessori Education is a self-paced learning process.
Montessori Education is a method of education that is based on self-directed activity, hands-on learning, and collaborative play. When children are taught in a Montessori environment, they tend to do things for themselves and take responsibility for their actions. It allows children to learn at their own pace and in a self-directed manner. Contemporary research supports the 100-year-old Montessori Method’s effectiveness, indicating that children who learn in Montessori classrooms demonstrate stronger social-emotional skills in many areas than children in a more traditional environment.
Montessori Curriculum boosts childhood and adult well-being
Montessori also recognizes that children do not all learn in the same manner. So, lessons and activities are tailored to the needs of each child’s developmental stage and academic abilities. A study published by Frontiers of Psychology suggests that a Montessori Education is linked to elevated psychological well-being. The study is one more data point in a growing body of research suggesting that Montessori pedagogy is better for humans than is the common model.
The study makes sense because the Montessori curriculum teaches independence and competence that leads to self-confidence. A major part of becoming a successful independent society member is to advocate for yourself. Children in Montessori schools are allowed to choose their own work and participate in meaningful activities.
