When is it best to consider Montessori for my child?
Dr. Montessori encouraged parents to consider education as an aid to life from birth. Montessori's four specific educative environments are: Toddlers up to 2.5 years, Casa classrooms (2.5 to 6+ years), Elementary (ages 6+ to 12), and Adolescent environments (teens up to 18 years). Since the environments support one another it is highly recommended that children begin with Montessori no later than 4 years of age, and stay with each program for at least 3 years.
