In a Montessori program, children have the opportunity to learn the same subjects they would learn in any other program. At the preschool level children develop social, emotional, motor, and perceptual skills, and begin to learn how to read and do math. They then become more involved with history, geography, and science. They learn some handwork as well as practical life skills. In elementary school, the curriculum is comprehensive. Parents are usually impressed with both the depth and breadth of the curriculum. Children master the basics early and can therefore spend more time developing skills and learning other subject areas.
