When you are considering a Montessori School for your child here are 11 things to look out for in a classroom of 3-6 year olds.
1) THIS: Open room with low shelves. Work area with mats, rugs and chowkis. Areas of work set up age appropriately for Practical Life, Sensorial, Language and Math. Writing area with insets for design. Culture. Reading/library area. Peace corner. Snack table where children are free to come and go. Some Schools have boards for display, but no busy, distracting,murals or cartoons.
4) THIS: Collective celebration.
11) THIS: An age range 3-6 year olds in one classroom, older children mentoring the younger children.
NOT THIS: Children streamed according to age.
