Mixed Age Grouping
Mixed age grouping and teacher to student ratio such as 1:14 are essential to the Montessori classroom which for years has proved to be a successful learning environment. These elements help to ensure independence, cooperation and self-confidence - qualities much needed for the children of the future. Thank you for including and clarifying these topics in the new standards.
