Gladwyne, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/07/2019 -- As a Montessori private elementary school serving children in the Wayne, PA community, Gladwyne Montessori is committed to providing a first-class education to each and every child who walks through their doors. This month, Gladwyne Montessori is taking the opportunity to highlight some of the unique benefits of a Montessori education in comparison to a traditional curriculum.
Firstly, a cornerstone of Montessori learning is the one-on-one attention and smaller class sizes that emphasize individuality. Unlike traditional schools, children are encouraged and supported as they learn at their own pace.
Further, unlike traditional educational programs where children are grouped by age, Montessori classrooms provide mixed-age settings that imitate the a realistic work environment, with older children developing leadership skills as they give guidance to younger students and younger students observing and desiring to take on the tasks that their role models participate in.
Lastly, Gladwyne Montessori focuses on in-depth understanding of material, not the memorization of facts needed to score high on a test. Standardization of thinking isn't celebrated in this child-centered environment. Instead, Gladwyne Montessori emphasizes the importance of children exploring their personal interests by providing the freedom they need to become lifelong learners.
Those who are looking for a Montessori-centered private elementary school or for educational programs for 2-year olds in Bala Cynwyd should not hesitate to drop in and visit Gladwyne Montessori today!
