Three Reasons to Choose Montessori for Your Child’s Early Education

31, Mar 2022

You have choices when it comes to your child’s early education. You can send them to public school or choose from the various private programs that are available. More and more families are questioning the design of public school and the long-term impact of sending their children there. This questioning has led many families to explore alternatives to public school for early education. Private programs have much more control over the design of the classroom, curriculum, and instruction – which is appealing to parents who want something different from public school. One of the best options for private early education is Montessori school.

The early education experience can shape the overall education experience

The place you choose to send your child for early education is important because the early education experience can shape your child’s overall experience with education. Starting your child out with a positive experience in school can make the process easier for years to come. A child who has a traumatic experience every morning being dropped off at school is not going to have a positive outlook on school in the future. In early Montessori education, providing young children with a positive first experience is one of the primary goals of the program. Teachers are trained to help parents and children with the separation process in order to make it go as smoothly as possible. This is just one example of the many ways that Montessori education can provide your child with a positive foundation for the overall school experience.

The focus of Montessori is to help students succeed in life

Another reason to consider a Montessori education for your child is the fact that the overall goal of the Montessori Philosophy is to prepare students to succeed in life. The focus of Montessori education is long-term. There are no shortsighted goals – like standardized test scores – that take the focus away from true and deep learning. The Montessori classroom and curriculum are designed with this long-term goal in mind.

Students receive individualized learning plans

One of the elements of the Montessori classroom that truly set it apart is the fact that the teacher provides instruction based on individual needs. Each student receives an individualized learning plan. This means that your child will be able to work at his or her own pace. If that means moving forward quickly, your child will have the freedom to do so without being held back by the rest of the classroom. If that means that your child needs to spend a little more time on a concept, he or she can do that as well. There is no one-size-fits-all lesson planning in the Montessori classroom. This design makes it possible for each child to thrive with a Montessori education.

You can help your child have a positive and beneficial experience with early education by choosing Montessori. If you want to experience Montessori for yourself, you can schedule a time to tour the campus and observe a classroom at Fountainhead Montessori School. Classroom observation will allow you to see the Montessori Method in action and help you understand what makes it such an excellent option for your child.
