THE LOVE OF LEARNING
Montessori curricula are intended to appeal to the child’s innate hunger for knowledge. Children learn to love learning. Traditional curricula focus on standardized test performance and grades. Children learn because it is mandatory.
Montessori curricula expand in response to the students’ needs. Traditional curricula are predetermined without regard to student needs.
In Montessori schools, “grade-levels” are flexible and determined by the child’s developmental range. In traditional schools, grade levels are more strictly defined by age within a twelve-month period.
