Montessori Homeschool Classroom Differences

Help me build this list everyone!

I want to create a series of blog posts each highlighting a particular difference between Montessori homeschooling and a Montessori classroom (in a school). As an AMI trained Montessorian and dedicated homeschooling mom, I am bound to see and miss different things than those with different backgrounds, so please let me know! :)

  • 30-35 children in a 3 or 6 year span vs. 1-8 or so in a 1-16 year span. 
  1. observation - positive "peer pressure"
  2. availability of materials
  3. inspiration and direction of interests
  • Dedicated space - ramifications in both settings
  • Longevity of materials - amount of use and durability requirements
  • Resource availability
  • politics - administration
  • amount of time needed
  • (ADD MORE!)

Our first year co-op room -
designed for homeschoolers ages 3-10, attending once a week
