Children learn through their hands and by exploring their environment. They learn by asking questions and then searching out the answers. Communication, collaboration, problem-solving, critical thinking, and creativity are 21st Century skills that are the hallmark of a Montessori education. At Meadowlark Montessori these skills form the backbone of our program.
The Montessori Method allows for freedom of movement and freedom of choice in work, mirroring the real world and teaching the child how to be self-directed in learning. Rote memorization and busy work are set aside in favor of the hands-on Montessori materials and activities that allow for learning to take place through exploration, problem-solving, and critical thinking.
