Publisher's Summary

Paula Lillard, director of a Montessori school ranging in age from 18 months to 15 years, provides a clear and cogent introduction to the Montessori program for the elementary and later years. 

In detailed accounts, Lillard shows how children acquire the skills to answer their own questions, learn to manage freedom with responsibility, and maintain a high level of intellectual stimulation by using the Montessori method. 

This is an essential handbook for parents and teachers who have chosen the Montessori alternative for the older child.

Base understanding for ages 3-12 & 12-24.

Well written and well spoken. A good overview of theory and some specifics of the Montessori methods.
