The multi-age Montessori classroom is a prepared environment designed to facilitate a child’s independent learning and exploration. It invites active participation appropriate to each child’s age and maturity. The Prayer Corner is the heart of the room where children move with purpose, freedom, and ease. Beautifully designed child-sized learning materials are neatly and sequentially ordered on open shelves. The classroom is filled with soft music, calm and gentle voices, and much joy.
