“The Montessori philosophy that all children are unique and should not be expected to learn in exactly the same way or at the same pace is a refreshing approach to learning,” she shared. “I also love the freedom children have to pursue their interests. Developing internal motivation through the Montessori approach will help better prepare children for adult life.”
