A note on titles and terminology
In Montessori classrooms, we try to use the most accurate terminology possible. Because of this, your Montessori 3-year-old may come home talking about shapes such as “ovoids” and “dodecahedrons.” Just as Montessorians use precise words in lessons, we deliberately use precise language to describe our faculty. Montessori faculty are rigorously trained to guide their students through new lessons and concepts, and observe those students and help when necessary – and refrain from interfering when a student is benefiting from figuring out how to do something independently. That is why we call our Montessori faculty Guides. You can learn more about Montessori terms through our Montessori Glossary.
