Montessori & 21st Century Skills

Try to imagine what the world will look like 20 years from now. What sorts of jobs are going to be available? What skills will be needed? We know these keep changing! That is the world that we are preparing our children for today. This is why the Montessori approach is so important in the fast-changing, modern world.

Preparing Children Today for the World of Tomorrow

A Montessori environment allows children to construct themselves as adaptable, educated, responsible, independent, and conscientious adults. The approach pushes each child to become self-disciplined, flexible, creative, and motivated: have built the skills they need to influence positive change in whatever they choose as their life’s work from entrepreneur to musician.

How? By training the child’s executive functions, which are the brain functions which control goal-related behaviours which are the predictors of success in efforts.

The goal of the Montessori method of education is to allow children to construct themselves as adaptable, educated, responsible, independent, and conscientious adults.
