Children who had attended Montessori from ages 3–11 outperformed their classmates
Montessori is a method of education that is based on self-directed activity, hands-on learning and collaborative play. In Montessori classrooms children make creative choices in their learning, while the classroom and the highly trained teacher offer age-appropriate activities to guide the process.
Children work in groups and individually to discover and explore knowledge of the world and to develop their maximum potential.
Children under Montessori Program consistently had higher mean scores than traditional education
A 1975 study published in Monographs of the Society for Research in Child Development showed that every year over a four year period from Pre-K to Grade 2 children under a Montessori program had higher mean scores on the Stanford–Binet Intelligence Scales than those in DARCEE or traditional programs.
A 1981 study published in Young Children found that whilst Montessori programs could not be considered to have undergone detailed evaluation, but that they performed equal to or better than other programs.
A 2006 study published in Science magazine found that Montessori education fosters social and academic skills that are equal or superior to those fostered by a pool of other types of schools.
Another study in the Milwaukee Public Schools found that children who had attended Montessori from ages 3–11 outperformed their classmates several years later on mathematics and science.
Further studies found that Montessori had some of the largest positive effects on achievement of all programs evaluated.
Learning Environment to promote Collaboration, Creativity and Community
Montessori Tutors have designed a bespoke Maths tuition programme which is suitable for pupils aged 6 – 12 years. Our focused approach means that we can support pupils during their key development phase and build the foundations of cognitive skills necessary for effective learning.
Our curriculum is designed by PGCE QTS qualified teachers as well Montessori experts. This means we can provide our pupils a private education embedded in the Montessori ethos whilst maintaining the quality and rigor of the National Curriculum. Our learning environment is split into two groups:
Casa Minor is designed for children aged between six to nine (L). The key role of this CASA or House of Minors is to:
- foster the growth of functional independence, task persistence and self-regulation
- promote social development through respectful, clear communication and safe, natural consequences
- contain a large variety of materials for the refinement of sensory perception and the development of literacy and mathematical understanding
- offer opportunities for imaginative exploration leading to confident, creative self-expression
Casa Junior is for children aged between nine (H) to twelve. The key role of this CASA or House of Juniors is to:
- offer opportunities for collaborative intellectual exploration in which the child’s interests are supported and guided
- support the development of self-confidence, imagination, intellectual independence and self-efficacy
- foster an understanding of the child’s role in their community, in their culture and in the natural world
