In the Montessori Classroom, children are grouped in three year+ age spans rather than traditional grades. In this system younger children are stimulated by older children; older children share their skills with those who are younger. This community is much like the world itself where individuals of different ages and abilities work together and learn from each other.

Since the children work independently or in small or large groups, the class is generally an active and harmonious environment. An atmosphere of self-discipline which each child achieves through successful sequential activities, permeates the classroom.

There are specially designed Montessori materials within each area of the curriculum. They are attractive, concrete, orderly, sequential, allow for a maximum amount of self-correction within their use, and are for the children’s individual use.  The Montessori educational apparatus acts as a stimulus to the child’s intellectual creativity. Without activity, life and spirit decline.
