How to Evaluate the Progress in Montessori Education

Montessori Education Kid Reading

Montessori Kids Universe schools strive to deliver authentic Montessori education and develop children who are well educated, socially fulfilled; independent thinkers; full of creativity. How can you be sure your Montessori student is getting the most from their education?

Characteristics of a Great Montessori Experience

When evaluating the student, here are some key characteristics to look for. These core components are what we; at Montessori Kids Universe schools strive to develop in the children we serve.

  • Independence. MKU students will develop an “I can do it myself” attitude.
    Though all children need guidance and instruction; our children don’t rely solely on the teacher; but learn to self discover and explore independently.
  • Confidence. Children in our classrooms will learn to tackle challenging problems
    with confidence; asking for help when necessary. They are willing to try new things and learn from their mistakes.
  • Self-discipline. The child will learn to make the right choices without punishment.
    Every child seeks instruction from teachers and parents; needing less re-direction.
  • Motivation to Learn. The MKU classroom encourages children to become fully- engaged in their environment. The child will show an inner motivation to do their work without constant coercing from the teacher.
  • Social Development. MKU students show respect for their teachers, fellow students, and classroom materials. They often work together to solve problems, both academically and during play.
  • Academic Achievement. In an MKU school; each child develops independently and uniquely. The 3-year cycle includes many skills the child will master, with individual progress being noted each day.

** MKU implements a progress tracking software in each classroom. This software is designed to assess the growth and academic progress of each child. This assessment tool creates an individualized plan for each child; the teacher then guides the child to the appropriate materials for mastery of skills.
