It is essential that parents understand the Montessori philosophy. It is vital to recognize that it is the child not the teacher who develops his or her potential through constructive work. The role of the teacher is to assist this development by preparing the environment directing the activity and encouraging responsible independence.
Montessori education helps children develop and refine the skills of perception rationalization and abstraction. Patterns of concentration perseverance and thoroughness established in early childhood produce a confident and competent learner. A Montessori education encourages the joy of learning at an early age and provides a framework in which intellectual and social maturity work together to provide the development of true community.
A major goal of the Montessori experience is to encourage self-discipline. From their first day in the classroom children are encouraged to make choices based upon their interest and their knowledge of available activities. They are given security by the presence of clear guidelines for responsible behavior – guidelines that are positively and consistently reinforced.
