Why Montessori

Why Montessori

All parents hope to find the best educational program for their children. They recognize the lasting impact that early learning experiences have on a child’s development and future learning. 

For more than 100 years, Montessori schools have been transforming education and shaping the lives of children who grow into productive, happy adults. A new study published in Frontiers in Psychology provides evidence that a Montessori education may be superior to traditional methods of education, especially on measures relating to students’ long-term psychological health and well-being. When comparing the results of those who attended Montessori schools as children with those who attended traditional schools, they found strong evidence of elevated psychological well-being in those who went to Montessori schools as children.
