At Montessori Schools of Snohomish County, learning incorporates an entirely different approach to education. Montessori learning emphasizes learning through all the senses, not just through listening, watching, or reading. Children in Montessori classrooms learn at their own, individual pace. As they learn and understand various concepts, they can move on without waiting for the rest of the class. They are introduced to dozens of learning possibilities. The didactic Montessori materials are developed so the children can explore what they are learning with a “control of error” inherent in the activity. This allows the child to correct themselves and make discoveries on their own.
