The Montessori Classroom
Harmony and peace are major components to the Montessori classroom environment. Montessori teachers focus on teaching harmony and grace in the very first days of class. Along with teaching those virtues, a peaceful environment is also encouraged. This is why many Montessori classrooms require children to wear slippers in class as opposed to hard-soled shoes. Staff members and children are also encouraged to use calm and quiet voices.
