Montessori and Regular Preschools: A Comparison

Available from: ERIC

Comparative education, Montessori method of education - Criticism, interpretation, etc.

See More

Abstract/Notes: This comparison is based on the authors' selective review of literature, observations of Montessori preschools in America and Australia, and experience in early childhood teacher education in Australia. The discussion explores general educational objectives, curricula, children's activities, instructional approaches, and teacher role in preschools implementing Montessorian and eclectic (or "regular") approaches. The preparation of early childhood teachers for Montessori and regular preschools is also compared and discussed in relation to advances in knowledge of child development and modern educational theory and practice. Recent research comparing educational outcomes of Montessori and regular preschool education is cited. The discussion concludes with an evaluation of the relevance and usefulness of the Montessori approach within the fields of preschool education and teacher education today.

Moral Development in Montessori and Traditional Preschool Children: Does School Type Make a Difference?

See More

Abstract/Notes: This study investigates the moral development of thirty 5-year-old children in Montessori and traditional preschools. Data for the study were derived from five sources: an intelligence test; a perspective taking task; an altruism/helping task; an altruism/sharing task; and an interview for exploring moral reasoning. Two 30 to 45 minute sessions were used for data gathering. Comparisons were made between school type and across the total sample in regard to altruistic behavior, specifically helping and sharing; moral judgement, specifically positive justice reasoning; and cognitive perspective taking. Positive justice reasoning and altruistic behavior were not found to be affected by exposure to a Montessori or traditional school environment. Rather, results indicated that developmental influences alone determined reasoning and behavior, thus confirming developmental theories of moral growth, and suggesting as well that direct intervention or teaching may be more effective than environment in spurring moral growth.
