Is Montessori A Good Choice for My Child?
This question can best be answered by understanding your own child’s learning tendencies and learning about Montessori Education. You know your child best—learning style, temperament, social and emotional development, use that information as you peruse our web links for resources to read, watch, and enjoy. Of course, the best way to understand Montessori is to observe a working Montessori classroom. Please give us a call to see for yourself the stimulating buzz of joyful scholars!
At RMCS, you will find that a Montessori environment is one of engagement. Children are thoroughly inspired visually and auditorily in academic pursuits as well as in their social, emotional, physical and personal development. Montessori methodology supports a child’s inner sense of organization, and social development self-directedness, concentration in a highly interactive, collaborative, environment of activity, movement, interaction.
