About Wheaton Montessori

Daily Life at Montessori

Montessori life takes place in much the same way it takes place in any community – students work, play, eat, rest and interact with each other. And like any other community, daily life at Wheaton Montessori School includes more than work.

As students develop, our Montessori teachers match appropriate lessons and materials to these sensitive periods when learning is naturally absorbed. In early childhood, students learn through sensory-motor activities. This includes working with materials that develop their cognitive abilities through direct experience of seeing, hearing, tasting, smelling, touching and movement.

The elementary years allow children to continue to organize their thinking using Montessori learning materials and an interdisciplinary curriculum—passing from concrete to the abstract and applying knowledge to real-world experiences.

This organization of information prepares students for the world of adolescence, when thought and emotion evolve into understanding more abstract, universal concepts.
