What Happens When A Child Leaves Montessori?
Montessori children are usually adaptable. They have learned to work independently and in groups. Since they've been encouraged to make decisions from an early age, these children are problem-solvers who can make choices and manage their time well. They have also been encouraged to exchange ideas and discuss their work freely with others. Good communication skills ease the way in new settings. Research has shown that the best predictor of future success is a sense of good self-esteem. Montessori programs, based on self-directed, non-competitive activities, help children develop good self-images and the confidence to face challenges and change with optimism.
