The Benefits of a Mixed age environment (Birth to 6)
1.5 CPDs, Time 41:23
This session is designed for Montessori educators to examine the benefits of the Mixed age environment, which is a naturalized model for Montessori education. Having three-year cycles within our classrooms, allows children of varied ages to develop in a synchronistic fashion. By enhancing learning and creating an environment rich in language, practical life, social experiences and the development of preferences, the students deeply benefit from a Multicultural experience. The mixed age environment adds to the accomplishment of skills and the contribution to the classroom dynamic, the family and discovery of the self for all students and all ages.
