About Montessori 

What is the Montessori Method?

  • Pioneered by Dr. Maria Montessori (1870-1952).
  • The Montessori Method is well recognized and well respected. It has been time-tested world wide across a full spectrum of societies and cultures.
  • In North America, there are over 5,000 private Montessori schools and over 200 public Montessori programs.
  • Some of Dr. Montessori’s ideas are as follows:
    • Hands-on learning and manipulatives, particularly for mathematics.
    • Structured learning environments designed to facilitate self-directed learning.
    • Stress on intrinsic motivation and student choice of activities.
    • Multi-age grouping, peer tutoring and cooperative learning.
    • Self-correcting materials.
    • A sensorial environment which reflects beauty, simplicity and order.
    • A non-distracting environment.

Distinguishing Features of a Montessori Elementary Program

    • A multi-aged, multi-graded diverse grouping of students (Pre Kindergarten for ages 3 & 4, Kindergarten and grades 1,2 and 3).
    • A teacher educated in the Montessori philosophy and methodology appropriate to the age level of the students.
    • An Alberta certified teacher.
    • A teacher working with the same group of students for more than one year.
    • A structured or prepared environment that encourages intrinsic motivation, spontaneous activity, and self-directed learning.
    • Math and Language Arts are structured within a large block of time to offer choice.
