Understanding Montessori: A Guide for Parents will help parents understand the stages of childhood growth and learning, and how Montessori education meets each child's learning needs.Understanding Montessori draws on the author's over thirty years of working with children to explain in simple language what neuropsychologists are now finding; that children learn faster and more easily in a properly prepared Montessori classroom than in traditional school settings.Montessori classrooms the world over have proven that, when implemented faithfully, Dr. Montessori's philosophy works for children of all abilities, all socio-economic circumstances and all cultures. Montessori education offers an unmatched complement of principles, methods and materials that develop a child's mind like no other educational method. Montessori education is innovative, respectful of the child, time-tested, developmentally exacting and research supported. Beautiful Montessori classrooms include the outdoors and aid children in valuing and caring for the wonders of our Earth.When parents understand the mightiness of Montessori education for their children and their families, parents find a way to create authentic Montessori education for their children, be it private, public, magnet, charter, parochial, or home schooling. Too many grandparents have made the comment, "I wish I had known about Montessori when my children were young."Perhaps the next generation of grandparents will say, "Thank goodness we found Montessori education for our children. And that made all the difference."
