Organisation of Montessori schools

This chapter elaborates on the principles which underpin Montessori education across the age groups. It gives examples of the organisation of Montessori schools around the world. It explores the structure of a typical day in a Montessori setting and the differences between a day in a setting for babies and toddlers, nursery, and primary school age children. Lastly, it explains how areas of learning are organised in the classroom and how this organisation impacts the role of the teacher as the child grows older.
