What Children Really Get Out of a Montessori Education

February 22, 2011 by · Leave a Comment 

This is a talk by Montessori Foundation President, Tim Seldin, to Montessori educators on the outcomes of a Montessori education that we typically see in children by age twelve.
A system of true values with long term benefits.

“Montessori schools are independent and nonsectarian. The spirituality that I mention has to do with one’s sense that we are part of the web of life, that the Earth is part the cosmos, and that we are all part of the human family. We seek to inspire a sense of wonder, global understanding, a tradition of giving back to our communities through service, and a sense of personal integrity and peace.” Tim Seldin
