Why the Montessori Method?...


Help for the strong-willed child

More traditional schools can sometimes be a difficult place for strong-willed children, who often begin challenging the system when they themselves are not being challenged. Strong-willed children are leaders. They are born that way. Our responsibility, as educators, is to take that raw power and drive and help the child transform it into harnessed energy. The advantage of a Montessori environment is that children have choices, which allows strong-willed children to focus their drive and energy towards accomplishing their desired goals.
