Why Montessori Works - new 2-week interactive, online course

Take an in-depth look at Dr. Maria Montessori’s discoveries of 100 years ago in the most effective ways to educate children. Her techniques of matching lessons to the way a child develops are now proven true and effective methods by educational researchers today. Her Montessori Method provides materials and resources that help each child learn and master themselves and their environment better than traditional educational methods.

Is it any wonder that many successful, innovative leaders attribute their success to their Montessori education?

Children learn practical skills that help integrate mind and body, develop great sensory discrimination and the Montessori Method is universally successful, regardless of language or location. Typically 4-5 year old children learn to read and write; they also practice mathematical principles from addition and subtraction.

Children in the elementary years study cosmic education. A curriculum that includes: history, biology, geography, math, geometry, language, grammar and cultural subjects.
