In Montessori, the learning environment is carefully prepared to train the senses, to stimulate curiosity, and to satisfy the child's need to know.
Goals of Montessori Learning:
In traditional learning, the goal is to master curricula objectives; in Montessori, the goal is to foster a love of learning.
The result of an FCMA education is a graduate who has learned how to truly respect others and to be respected, who has become a confident learner, and who has amassed a body of knowledge that can lead and support the graduate for the rest of his/her life.
