Many parents choose Montessori because they believe it helps their children acquire holistic leadership skills and independence, valuing the child’s happiness above convenience. Here are 10 reasons why you would want to choose the Global Montessori Nursery (GMN) for your child:
Multi-aged classrooms – It has been found that children within certain age groups and levels can benefit from being in different classrooms with children of mixed ages – older children benefit by being role models and younger children benefit by seeing the success of older children.
Freedom of movement – independence in the classroom allows your child to move about freely as needed, promoting self-control and feeling respected to make their own choices.
Educational materials – children learn in a variety of different ways and it is believed that the educational materials that are rich in visual presentation are beneficial.
