The Montessori approach works best when manifested in a whole community of like minds. We foster this community with regular school events and get-togethers.
Highlights of the Montessori elementary curriculum & material exploration
Get to know more about the Montessori curriculum at Guidepost Montessori together with lead guide Mag. Monika Kosa!
Wednesday February 26
Guidepost Montessori at Vienna
After a brief overview of our school and the enrollment process with Head of School Katherine Price Beuchert, lead guide Mag. Monika Kosa will give an overview of Montessori elementary as well as give parents a chance to experience materials and a presentation. This event will be held in German and English and is a "just for parent" evening at Guidepost.
Parents who loved the safety and security of Montessori for their young child sometimes wonder if it will adequately prepare their older child for the rigors of middle school, university, testing and the “real world.” The good news is that Montessori not only meets those challenges, but Montessori elementary programs typically exceed them!
Montessori offers elementary children a rich academic experience, while also fostering the development of an array of life skills that are not inherent in traditional learning models. These are just a few of the ways in which Montessori elementary serves children:
by nurturing their blossoming intellect,
by providing outlets for creative exploration,
by supporting learning through hands-on materials,
by forming a strong bond of trust with learners,
by offering opportunities for developing initiative,
by encouraging the pursuit of individual interests,
by supplying project-based learning experiences,
by supporting social and emotional development,
by honing time management skills,
by cultivating grace and courtesy,
by extending the freedom to excel and be self-paced,
by developing critical thinking skills, and
by managing multiple projects.
Montessori is about a preparation for life, not just academic skills. The curriculum is deep, interdisciplinary, sequential, and challenging in real-life ways. It does this while also preserving a love of learning that is too often quelled by the endless assignments, rote memorization, mounds of homework, and excessive testing associated with conventional schooling. It also guides the development of soft skills, practical know-how, emotional intelligence and executive functioning.
