Features of Milton Montessori schools

Milton has a variety of different kinds of private schools. Other than Montessori schools, it has special needs, gifted, Christian, and Catholic schools, among others.

What are Milton Montessori schools like? In many ways, they resemble other Montessori schools. They have a unique and progressive approach, which is responsive to the developmental interests and needs of both younger and older children.

The Montessori educational approach provides an appealing alternative to what you’ll find in traditional schools. Like Waldorf and Reggio Emilia, it follows a number of principles that depart from the norm.

  • Mixed-age classrooms: Most Montessori schools in Milton, Ontario have multi-age groupings. This includes infant (birth to 3), toddler (3 to 6), lower elementary (6-9), and upper elementary programs. Some schools have secondary programs as well.
  • Decentralized learning: In Montessori schools in Milton, teachers rarely stand at the front of the classroom and deliver lectures. Rather, they walk around class, provide guidance, and give short lessons to students. Instead of sitting at desks listening to the teacher, children work on different tasks in various parts of the classroom, either on their own or in groups.
  • Curricular flexibility: There isn’t a one-size-fits-all curriculum. Instead, kids have quite a bit of latitude to choose their own work, with guidance from the teacher.
  • Concrete learning: Children work with lots of hands-on materials. This can make learning more engaging and efficient.
  • Integrated curriculum: Few subjects are taught are on their own. Rather, learning tends to be more interdisciplinary, where students focus on tasks and topics that cover a wide range of subjects, such as math, science, history, and theology.
  • Character education: Schools focus on more than academics. Students are taught practical skills, as well as independence, responsibility, and the importance of the community.

Benefits of Montessori schools in Milton

The Montessori method is, above all, child-centred. A common phrase to describe the Montessori method is “follow the child.” Meaning follow the child’s interests, needs, and abilities.

This child-centred approach is both popular method and effective. While it isn’t without its detractors, many agree it has several appealing features. Among others, Montessori schools in Milton tend to have the following benefits.

  • Individualized learning: Teaching and learning is tailored to the abilities and interests of each child. Children work at their own pace, choose developmentally appropriate tasks, and have their own learning goals.
  • Peer teaching: Multi-age groupings allow for plenty of student-to-student teaching. Older kids teach, mentor, and model behaviour to their younger peers. Research shows this can speed up learning.
  • Improved focus: Students are given lots of time to work on their own tasks and projects, free of interruptions (during uninterrupted work periods). This can boost their focus, concentration, and discipline.
  • Love of learning: The freedom to choose one’s own work, with teacher guidance, allows students to pursue their unique interests and passions. This can lead to a love of learning that extends beyond the classroom.
