    Reinforcing learning and good learning habits

"Our ideal is that learning should occur naturally and joyfully at the proper moment for each individual child. That is the Montessori method."

Welcome to Northfield Montessori

Many people often wonder why Montessori emphasizes children of different ages learning together in a Montessori classroom. The answer lies in the individuality of each child. Since each child’s past experience is varied and each learns at a different speed, the Montessori classroom is designed to allow a child to choose the most appropriate level of materials to work on.

Because each child works at their own pace, there is no competition in the classroom. Only when children understand and are confident in the use of basic skills should any competition be introduced in education. Dr. Montessori wrote:

“Never let a child risk failure until he has reasonable chance of success.”
