Abstract/Notes: For many years in our kindergartens classical teacher-centered teaching has been applied. In this article we will try to study and shed light on: Was it the best method? Has this method helped the child's independence, self-realization or self-development? What about the psycho-emotional realms? It has been observed in many years of work in the preschool system, that classical methods have not properly helped the child's self-development and his achievements. The Montessori method has been applied around the world for years, "Help me do it myself" .... At its core lies the child's freedom in carrying out any activity from clothing - unclothing to scientific research. The teacher is the observer and the child chooses to perform a game or other activity based on his or her preferences or emotional state. It has been seen that the Montessori method has had a very positive impact on the development of the child. Individual work and interest are made possible thanks to educational tools created in a group that is heterogeneous in age and experience. Psychologically it is important that in a different age group there is no reason to compare. By applying Maria Montessori's method in life, adults need to understand what interests the baby, create the conditions for fuller development, and explain how the little one can learn more. But it remains to be seen how much can be achieved, how many teachers with years and years of experience can come out of their frameworks, and in addition, kindergarten education should not be limited to its walls, but requires continuing at home and a close parent-teacher collaboration.

Abstract/Notes: a "The underlying motives of school choice emerged as major courses of action to offer parents opportunities for education in the free market enterprise and to limit the racial desegregation of public schools. This policy became known as "freedom of choice." Historically, parental choice of schools was the option of parents who could afford the tuition of private or parochial schools. The first options for public school choice appeared during the 1960's. Today, magnet schools are the most popular form of school choice. Montessori schools have become a well-liked preference of magnet school options. Fifteen years ago, there were approximately 50 public Montessori schools in the United States. Today, there are between 250 and 300 public Montessori schools. While research has been accumulating on why parents choose a particular type of school (parochial, private, magnet, charter, or local public school) far less is known about why parents choose a particular curriculum. The purpose of this dissertation is to explore how parents navigate school choice decisions and why they choose Montessori schools over other available options. This dissertation further examines if parents' educational choices correspond to their reasons for selecting Montessori schooling and the impact family income and ethnicity have on their preference for Montessori. The methodology of this study utilized a mixed methods research medium. The mixed methods approach blended two different research strategies, qualitative and quantitative. Recognizing the overlap between qualitative and quantitative research methods, the data from self-report surveys were supplemented with semi-structured interviews. Three hundred surveys were distributed to the parents of the Montessori school and interviews were held with ten parents of the same school. Of the original 300 surveys, 132 were returned and comprised my final sample. The quantitative findings indicate that parents who choose the Montessori school use... OCLC Record: 866942318
