Why choose Montessori? As we navigate the ups and downs of raising children, particularly in these fraught times, it can be helpful to step away from the daily challenges and envision your child’s future.
New University of Virginia research shows Montessori education goes well beyond academics to provide adults with:
- Better health and work performance and
- More positive social behavior and relationships

About the University of Virginia Study on Montessori Education Outcomes
“The study is one more data point in a growing body of research suggesting #Montessori pedagogy is better for humans than is the common model,” researchers tell Forbes magazine. “And, since it is over 100 years since people began implementing Montessori, it has been beta-tested — we know how to implement this pedagogy and are doing so all over the world. More people should know about it.”
