Abstract/Notes: "A Mi-Carême ball will be given at the Plaza on March 11 for the benefit of the free Montessori Tenement Schools of New York. Mrs. E. Thompson Seton, of 512 Fifth av., is chairman of the finance committee of the New York Chapter of the Montessori Educational Association that is maintaining these institutions. One of the most interesting of these schools is situated in what was meant to be three tenements, south of the John Jay dwellings, at 77th st., near the East River. It consists of an office, a schoolroom, a playroom and kitchen. The schoolroom is equipped with low desks for the small children of the neighborhood and luncheon is served by the scholars themselves at a round table in the playroom. A canary and a frog are kept as pets."

Responses to Guidelines for Developmentally Appropriate Practice for Young Children and Montessori

Available from: ERIC

Annual Meeting of the National Association for the Education of Young Children (Nov 13-16, 1986)

Abstract/Notes: Three central components of the Montessori method are described and shown to be reflected in the National Association for the Education of Young Children's (NAEYC) guidelines for developmentally appropriate curricula. NAEYC guideline 1C states, "Teachers prepare the environment for children to learn through active exploration and interaction with adults, other children, and materials"; this is a statement of a basic Montessori principle. A second Montessori principle concerning "sensitive periods" is reflected in the entire body of the NAEYC guidelines. A third principle common to both Montessori practice and the NAEYC guidelines is the idea of the teacher as an observer. It is concluded that, if early childhood educators intend to follow the NAEYC guidelines, they will be behaving very much like Montessori teachers. (RH)
