Introduction to Compass’ Authentic Montessori Programs
Compass’s authentic Montessori experience is rooted in the philosophy of educating the whole child. In multi-age classrooms, students determine a self-paced curriculum; teach and are taught by peers, which strengthens community bonding and skills; and foster a lifelong love of learning. Hands-on learning and small-group lessons engage and inspire students to apply knowledge and move towards more abstract concepts. Materials and stations throughout the classroom encourage movement, as well as independent work or group follow ups. Each classroom meets the needs of the child during that Plane of Development, and provides the foundation for the next. Compass strives to create an authentic Montessori learning experience to begin preparing the children for life outside the classroom.
