How your child can benefit from a Montessori education - watch the video!

A child who attends a Montessori school will have a dramatically different educational experience than a child who attends a public school. As Montessori Foundation President Tim Seldin explains in this video, the point of Montessori schools is prepare them for university and the world beyond, not to memorize answers in order to pass standardized tests.

Children who attend Montessori schools learn to ask questions and be curious about the world around them. They develop a strong sense of self-worth and independence. They learn how to live in communities and how to work as a part of a team. No matter what their backgrounds are, children stand to gain an enormous amount from attending a Montessori school.

Montessori School at StarCreek: The Pink Tower

Pink Tower

The purpose of the pink tower is to build blocks of graduated 3 dimensional sizes in order to understand sequence and order. The cubes represent the concrete concept of the numbers of 1 through 10. It develops:

  1. 1. Visual and small muscular perception of dimensions.
  2. This awareness of dimensions leads to observation of the child’s environment.
  3. Helps to make smoother and more coordinated movement.
  4. Math readiness by introducing concepts of smaller, larger, prepares for the decimal and number system.

It also helps to prepare for the cube root. 1000 smallest cubes make the largest 10th cube. 8 of the smallest cubes make the second cube, 27 of the smallest cube make the third cube, 64 of the smallest cubes make the fourth cube, and 124 cubes make the fifth cube, and so on.

The Importance and Benefits of Early Childhood Education

Cute reader

The first few years of your education may also be the most important. Studies consistently show that the quality of a child's earliest years of schooling play a significant role in later scholastic achievement.

They also show that enrolling in classes prior to the kindergarten age is extremely important to a child's emotional and intellectual development.  The many benefits of early education include:

  • The earlier you begin learning, the stronger your cognitive skills become at a critical stage of development. A 2007 study found that children with pre-kindergarten education found it much easier to learn to read and do math problems. By challenging your brain at an early age, you boost your ability to learn difficult concepts and think in creative, innovative ways.
  • Early education enables children to develop strong social skills. By being in an environment with other children, a child learns to work and play as part of a community. At Montessori schools, for instance, children are teamed with students from different age groups, which helps acclimate them to working with people who are dissimilar to them.
  • Children crave knowledge. They begin to pepper adults with questions as soon as they gain the ability to ask. An effective early education program provides children with a suitable environment for learning, which gives them the structure and the time necessary to explore the world around them.
  • A quality early education increases a child's likelihood of a successful future. A 25-year study of the effectiveness of early education programs found that children who begin their schooling before kindergarten are more likely to graduate from high school, steer clear of trouble, and lead stable, happy lives.

Montessori schools have been providing unique learning opportunities to children since 1911.
