Montessori - Mixed Ages

An authentic Montessori classroom is a peaceful, multi-aged community with a 3-year age span. By living in a diverse community, children develop important life skills such as cooperation, grace and courtesy, patience, tolerance, communication, conflict resolution, leadership, independence, self confidence... Other benefits include:

  • Younger children learn from older children who are positive role models.
  • Older children reinforce their own learned concepts by putting them into action.

Daphnea Solomon, owner/director of Tupelo Children's House Montessori School (and UMA graduate), shares this lovely photo. Here Addison (just turned 4) is getting a lesson with a sandpaper letter from Riley (6 years old).
