postheadericon Montessori and Traditional Education: Philosophical Perspectives and Approaches in Contrast

When we use the term “traditional education” we don’t mean to suggest that all of the other schools which are not officially “Montessori programs” are therefore “traditional.” Montessori schools do not have a monopoly on the things that we believe and do in our classrooms, and a growing number of innovative teachers and child-centered educational models have adopted elements of the Montessori approach in their effort to design more effective schools.
