In a structured setting
The child in a Montessori
class is allowed to develop at their own pace intellectually.
What is made available to the child are the keys and a road
map to the exploration of the world. The child is shown a basic
concept and is guided to build on that idea. The child learns
each segment at their own pace, and moves on to the next as
each one is mastered.
