Where to Look for Up to Date Information on Montessori Education

22, Mar 2022

Montessori education was developed by Maria Montessori over 100 years ago. The core tenets of the philosophy remain unchanged because the basics of how children learn are also unchanged. However, there are elements within education that look a lot different than they did in the original Montessori classroom. Because of this, many parents need direction in order to find the most reliable and up to date information on Montessori education. Some of the resources you should explore include the writings of Maria Montessori, the parent library of Fountainhead Montessori School, and the administration of the program you are considering for your child.

The writings of Maria Montessori

The original work of Maria Montessori is still an excellent place to get information about Montessori education. This is because core values and truths do not change over time. For example, Montessori believed that all children could learn when provided with the right environment and opportunities. This fact is just as true today as it was 100 years ago. She also believed that the goal of education was to prepare students for success in life – not only in school. When it comes down to it, most parents share that as the overarching goal for their children. These foundational elements of Montessori education are included in the original writings of Maria Montessori and are an excellent resource.

The parent library of Fountainhead Montessori School

It can be difficult to navigate through all of the information available online about any given topic. When it comes to Montessori education, there are people out there with ideas and opinions that do not necessarily align with the Montessori Philosophy. Getting your information from an unreliable source can impact your decision about sending your child to Montessori school. Because of this, Fountainhead Montessori School created a parent library with links to books, articles, and videos that provide up to date and accurate information about Montessori education. You can explore these resources and expand your knowledge about Montessori education.

The administration of the program you are considering for your child

If you already have your eyes on a particular Montessori program, the administration at that program can be a resource for you. If you have questions or concerns, reach out to the administration. You can also schedule a time to tour the campus, observe a class, and ask questions in person. At Fountainhead Montessori School, we encourage parents to include a campus visit in their process of exploring the option of a Montessori education.

The information overload that comes from a simple online search about Montessori education can overwhelm anyone. Before you spend hours combing through information from questionable sources, start with resources outlined above. You will save yourself time and frustration by starting with resources that have already been vetted for you.
