The Montessori Environment:
The Montessori classroom is a structured environment designed to put children at ease. It is geared to the size, interest and pace of the children. In an atmosphere of order and discipline, the children have the freedom to move about the classroom ,working at their own pace, doing things for themselves while respecting others.
Three to six year old children work together in the same environment, providing the younger children with a graded series of role models for imitation. The older children gain confidence and master skills by teaching their younger peers. You can find out how learning is achived at Crossridge Montessori in our Learning section.
