Mixed Aged Classrooms

Montessori classrooms feature mixed-age groups, allowing younger children to learn from older peers who act as role models and tutors. This setup ensures that each child learns at their own pace while benefiting from the mentorship of older classmates. Teachers observe and guide this process, fostering a collaborative and supportive learning environment.

Inquiry-Based Learning: Curiosity is Key

Inquiry-based learning engages students in hands-on, interactive, and collaborative activities that explore real-world problems and questions. This approach emphasizes that learning is an active process, encouraging students to ask questions, make observations, and test hypotheses. Activities may include conducting experiments, collecting data, analyzing evidence, and developing solutions.
