Frequently Asked Questions

  • How many students are typically in a Montessori classroom?
    Montessori classes at the Early Childhood level and above might include 20 – 30 students whose ages span 3 years.
  • Does Montessori follow any specific curriculum?
    Montessori does not restrict children to any curriculum but the areas which are taught in Montessori are same as in traditional schools such as Mathematics, Culture and Language (Urdu & English) but the teaching methodology is different such as while studying map of the world, he will further explore oceans and continents. Then further he will learn about individual characteristics of every continent. This approach to education demonstrates interrelatedness of all things.
  • Why do Montessori classrooms group different age levels together?
    Mix-age group encourages children to develop strong social and collaborative skills. The benefit of mix age group is that younger children learn from older children and older children serve as role models for younger ones such as they exhibit socially desirable behavior like helping the younger children. It also provides opportunities for leadership.
  • How do teachers teach different age groups at the same time?
    In a Montessori school, teachers follow individualized Education Plan for every child. Children learn at their own pace. Here, the role of Montessori directress is that she directs child with the appropriate use of Montessori material according to the child’s age. Such as children of age 4 and below will work on EPL and Sensorial materials which prepare the child for mathematics. When the directress notices that he is ready to work on mathematics then she assists him in learning the basic mathematics concepts.
  • As Montessori allows children to choose their own work, how does it ensure that they receive a well-rounded education?
    It’s important to note that choosing what you do is not the same as doing whatever you want. While the children in a Montessori classroom do have freedom, they have freedom within boundaries and it is expected that the children will be making meaningful work choices throughout their day. These choices are made under the watchful eye of their teacher (guide) who carefully observes to ensure each child is receiving a well-rounded education.
  • How do Montessori schools report student progress?
    Because Montessori believes in individually paced academic progress, we do not assign letter grades or rank students within each class according to their achievement. Student progress, however, is measured in different ways, which may include evaluation sheets for every individual student, marked by teachers through which we have an overview of child’s progress. This report is also communicated to parents throughout the academic years.
  • Are Montessori children able to adjust in other traditional schools?
    The truth of the matter is that everyone’s life involves change. And this is actually a good thing, so long as you are equipped with the necessary coping tools and skills. Teaching our children to adjust to change without undue fear and anxiety is one of life’s important lessons…for all children, Montessori- schooled or otherwise. But here’s the bonus for Montessori students: the Montessori Method is all about developing such coping tools through building confidence, independence, and problem solving skills. As a result, most Montessori students are actually more adaptable than their non-Montessori peers.
  • How well do Montessori students do compared to students in non-Montessori schools?
    Children in the high-fidelity Montessori school, as compared with children in the other two types of school, showed significantly greater gains on measures of executive function, reading, math, vocabulary, and social problem-solving.
