About The Hills Montessori School Inc Preschool
In this environment they learn to work independently, based on their own initiative which builds concentration, self discipline and self-esteem. The Montessori classroom includes children of mixed ages 3-5 years, who stay with the same teacher for all their pre-school years (the period of the Absorbent Mind). This fosters stability and security for the young child. In this setting, the children learn from each other and they learn because of each other. Younger children can observe the activities and the modelling of the older children while older children have the opportunity to reinforce their knowledge by sharing it with the younger children.
