Parent Education Night

Parent Education Night

This is an opportunity for Wilson parents to become more familiar with the Montessori educational approach developed by Italian physician and educator Maria Montessori and characterized by an emphasis on independence, freedom within limits, and respect for a child’s natural psychological, physical, and social development. Come and explore your child's daily working environment in repect to:

  • Mixed age classrooms
  • Self-directed choice of activity from within a prescribed range of options
  • Concepts on having uninterrupted blocks of work time
  • Self-exploration with guidance. A Constructivist or "discovery" model, where students learn concepts from working with materials, rather than by direct instruction
  • Manipulatives. Specialized educational materials developed by Montessori and her collaborators
  • Freedom of movement within the classroom - no prescribed desk seating
