HAPPENS AFTER MONTESSORI?
is been proven time and again that Montessori children are unusually
adaptable, and have learned to work independently and in groups.
Since they've been encouraged to make decisions at an early
age, these children are problem solvers who can make wise decisions
and manage their time well. Also, they possess good communication
skills as they have always been encouraged to exchange ideas
and to discuss their work freely with others.
habits and skills which a child develops in Montessori education
will help him work more efficiently, more carefully and concentrate
more effectively, no matter what he does. Research has shown
that the best predictor of future success is a sense of self
esteem. Montessori programs, based on self directed, non-competitive
activities, help children develop good self images and the confidences
to face challenges and change with optimism.
order to facilitate the transition from Montessori school to
Traditional school, parents must monitor their child's work
in the new academic situation and keep in close contact with
their child's teachers. Parents and teachers working together
can ensure continuity in the child's lifetime love for learning
as advocated by Dr. Maria Montessori.
