An integral part of Montessori education is based on learning in a community environment. By exposing children between three and to six years of age to the same environment, older children learn to be more responsible while younger children will have role models to emulate. This will help them learn to work together, co-operate and co-exist like they have to when they go out into the world.

“I like Montessori method. It teaches through play. It makes learning a pleasure. It follows the natural instincts of the human being. The present system casts the brain into a mold. It does not encourage original thought or reasoning.”
