Vaughan Montessori school approach

Montessori schools in Vaughan (including Thornhill, Woodbridge, and Concord) are a great option for many families. They offer challenging programs for students of different ages. From preschool to secondary school, they offer mixed-age classrooms, usually for children aged 0-3 (or 1.5-3), 3-6, 6-9, 9-12, and 12-15.

Mixed-age classrooms promote plenty  of interaction, collaboration, and child-to-child teaching. It also leads to a dynamic classroom with lots of engaging and stimulating work.

Below, the Montessori approach is discussed in more detail. For more detailed coverage, see our main Montessori school guide.

The Montessori philosophy is unique. It includes several effective educational principles, including the following

Montessori teaching approach

Montessori school teachers rarely provide whole-class lectures. They rarely stand at the front of the class and lecture to all the students. And when they do provide lectures or lessons, these tend to be short, interactive, and engaging.

More often, though, teachers move around the class, and provide guidance and support to students. One of their main aims is to connect children with meaningful work. They also encourage them to repeat and practice activities, and plan projects to meet the specific learning needs of each child. Teachers are thus viewed more as “guides” or “mentors” than “teachers” in the traditional sense.
