How is the montessori environment different to other child care centres?

Within the classroom you will notice the calmness, sense of order and children working purposefully either individually or in small groups. When children finish their activity they learn how to pack up and return the activity to the correct place on the shelf, ready for the next child to enjoy. Through this the children develop a sense of respect for their own environment. Children are free to select their own activities and work with this activity as long as they need, they are not rushed. Children and educators speak respectfully to one another, there is no need to raise our voice. Children are encouraged to be independent, respectful and responsible for not only their environment but also each other.
