Montessori vs Traditional

A Parent's View

A Neuro-Scientist's View

"Education either functions as an instrument which is used to

facilitate integration of the younger generation into the logic of the

present system and bring about conformity or it becomes the practice of freedom, the means by which men and women deal critically and creatively with reality and discover how to participate in the transformation of their world."

Paulo Freire,



“Montessori children are independent moral agents.  They have self-control, advanced academic skills, empathy and they understand complex systems.  They understand that we are all connected.  They know that all human beings have the same needs, and they know that whatever comes out of a smokestack is going to land on someone, somewhere.  They love the earth.  They are attached to reality.  They are tomorrow’s leaders, and they will change the world”                                                                                                                                          Dr Steve Hughes
