I always love to see Montessori education in action. Here are some inspiring videos from Countryside Montessori School (Countryside Day School) in Northbrook, Illinois. The school is for children 16 months through 8th grade.
The “Learning for Life” video gives many clear images of children deeply involved in self-directed work. While the video is produced for parents considering a Montessori school for their child, the images and words give a clear introduction to Montessori principles and a glimpse of Montessori education in action. Whether you’re interested in enrolling your child in a Montessori school or using Montessori principles at home, there are ideas you can gain from watching the video.
