Everything in a Montessori classroom is set up to benefit the student. By giving your students small, manageable tasks you instill confidence. By allowing them to proceed at their own pace, you instill a love of learning. By giving them the ability to take care of their classroom, you instill independence. And finally, by limiting materials and screens you help them develop a longer attention span.
The peaceful, yet the orderly design of the Montessori school rooms plays a major role in the child’s development. When presented with too many options, a child may become overwhelmed. When you create a relaxed environment the student can explore the material without feeling rushed.
A Montessori classroom is much more than just a room. A Montessori classroom is the first step on a journey to a peaceful, loving and fulfilling educational experience. And, it is the first step to raising an incredible adult. After all, an adult who loves to learn can accomplish virtually anything.
