Abstract/Notes: Benefits of AMS school accreditation include: * Providing a road map for ongoing reflection, evaluation, and improvement of programs * Offering families assurance of a quality Montessori education at a school that meets a global standard of excellence * Promoting community among staff members who are integral to the mission and vision of the school * Being recognized in many states that grant AMS-accredited schools significant advantages, such as recognition within a state's quality rating and improvement system (QRIS) or exemption from particular state licensing requirements * Recognition by the National Council for Private School Accreditation, providing automatic dual accreditation when AMS accreditation is granted * Enabling cooperative accreditation with 20+ national and regional accrediting associations-earning multiple accreditations for the work of one! [...]schools incrementally work through the verification, reflection, and strategic planning of the school accreditation process. Promoting the delivery of quality Montessori education is a priority of AMS, so we sought to design a method of support for our member schools to pursue continuous improvement that could lead to accreditation in a Montessori way-incrementally and at a manageable pace that suits each individual school.

Abstract/Notes: The main purpose of this study is to examine whether the age at which children start to learn to read affects their later progress - specifically, whether an earlier start at reading gives children an advantage when they enter first grade at the age of six years. The study was conducted in Zürich, Switzerland, and compared a first grade class in a local school with two first grade classes in a Montessori school. There were 42 participants aged between six and seven years, 22 girls and 20 boys. The children were given a series of alphabet knowledge, reading and phoneme tests at the beginning and end of the year to measure the reading progress of each group. It was found that although the Montessori children who had already attended the Montessori kindergarten had an advantage over the local children, this advantage was only significant for alphabet knowledge, and was not translated into a significant advantage in either phonemic awareness or reading ability. Reasons for this were considered including the relative efficiency with which children learned to read in German at the local school, possible failings in the Montessori instruction, and the fact that many of the local children had already learned to read at home before starting school something that may be related to the high socioeconomic status (SES) and home literacy environment (HLE) of both groups.
