What is Montessori?Child with teacher

Montessori education uses different teaching and learning methods than a traditional classroom. Montessori programs offer students the opportunity to learn:

  • At their own pace and enjoy freedom within limits
  • From each other in a multi-age classroom
  • With hands-on materials, moving from concrete to abstract concepts
  • With a teacher in a classroom environment that follows kids’ natural curiosity


Flint Community Schools has partnered with a community group, Montessori for Flint, to provide exceptional learning experiences. For more information on Montessori education, visit Montessori for Flint’s website at www.FlintMontessori.org.
