Montessori Education- 21st Century Solution

At Wilmington Montessori School, we strive to change the face of education! We are bold enough to imagine a world in which schools value the development of creativity, thinking skills, innovation, leadership, flexibility, and social responsibility. Even with continual changes in our cultural and global needs, many traditional program models continue to uphold their standard practices. In contrast, Montessori Education stands at the forefront of educational reform with its paradigm of integrated, developmentally appropriate, individualized, and global education for the 21st Century. Sir Ken Robinson (a featured speaker at the upcoming American Montessori Society conference) challenges us to explore new educational paradigms. I encourage you to take a moment and view the RSA animation of Sir Ken Robinson’s lecture below.
