Walk into a Montessori classroom anywhere in the world, and you will invariably see happy and busy children engaged in purposeful work. The classroom itself is distinct: typically beautiful and enticing, but also characterized by the carefully prepared environment designed to reinforce the child’s independence and natural urge toward self-development.
The room, the equipment, activities and the teachers respond to and guide children in ways that directly relate to their own developmental levels. In essence, the classroom provides an environment in which each child is respected and enabled to grow and learn at his or her own pace.
Pennington Montessori offers programs for children ages 6 weeks through 6 years.
