You Might Be A Montessorian by Katy Wright

Education must enable us to find our purpose. Ideally, we get educated to transform us from an ordinary, unaware state of being, to a transformed and enlightened state of being. Education is not just a matter of the quantity of knowledge and skills, but it involves being able to discover the core of who we are and set us on a path to live our lives with meaning. Today’s education system is a legacy of the military and factory system and does not satisfy our children’s needs. Serene discusses how Montessori education addresses many of the challenges raised and offers an alternative education model that has withstood the test of time.

How we Montessori in our home! DIY + functional by Milena Ciciotti

Today the term “Montessori” stands more for a method, than a school itself. The fact that it can be used freely by anyone led to a great variation of schools. Educators all over the world borrow Montessori’s name, insights, and materials to organize kindergartens, elementary schools, special needs programs, or even full 12-year curriculums. Some parents use it for homeschooling.

The following characteristics are shared among most programs:

  • Students are free to choose what to learn
  • Open classrooms that allow free movement
  • Use of specialized Montessori materials
  • Mixed-age classes (from 0-3, 3-6 or 6-12) so children can learn from each other
  • Uninterrupted blocks of study time, usually three hours
  • No grading or homework
