Montessori vs. Reggio Emilia schools

Comparing Montessori and Reggio Emilia schools in Canada

Find a list of schools

What’s the difference between Montessori and Reggio Emilia schools? And which is better for your child: Montessori or Reggio?

Below, we compare Montessori to Reggio Emilia education in Canada. This should help you to understand the difference between these two approaches. It should also help you decide if either type of school is a good fit for your child.


Montessori schools

Montessori education is student-centred. It involves a wide range of progressive principles that put children front and centre.

Flexibility

In Montessori schools, students don’t sit at desks facing the front of the classroom, listening to long lectures. Instead, they’re free to move around class, choose their own tasks and activities, and interacting with their peers.

Individualized curriculum

Montessori schools don’t have a one-size-fits-all curriculum. Instead, students work on tasks that are developmentally appropriate. With some guidance from the teachers, they can choose work that interests them and that they’re more likely to complete.

Hands-on learning

Children work with a lot of concrete classroom materials, including so-called “manipulatives,” sandpaper letters, movable alphabets, rods, cylinders, and geometric tablets. There’s a special emphasis on hands-on work in preschool and elementary school. It’s thought lead to improved engagement, focus, and better learning outcomes.

Uninterrupted work time

Kids are given lots of uninterrupted work time. Starting in primary or elementary school, they’re given at least one three-hour uninterrupted period a day. This allows them to work on their chosen tasks free of distractions, either by themselves or in groups.

Focus on the whole child

Schools focus on more than core academics. They aim to educate the whole child. Kids learn to become independent, well-rounded, and responsible. They learn to take care of the classroom, be polite and helpful, and the importance of the community. They also learn practical skills, such as cooking, cleaning, and gardening.

Limited technology

The use of modern-day technology is minimized. Computers, interactive whiteboards, tablets, and the like are rarely, if ever, used in preschool or elementary school. In secondary school, they’re sometimes used for specific tasks, such as research projects.

Reggio Emilia schools

Reggio Emilia is a unique approach to education. It’s philosophy, like Montessori, involves a number of progressive classroom practices.

Self-directed learning

Reggio Emilia schools and preschools use a mostly self-guided curriculum. Teachers and students co-construct the curriculum. Teachers listen to and observe kids in class to see what sparks their interest. They use this knowledge to prepare the learning environment, plan their teaching, and help kids choose age-appropriate tasks and activities.

Emergent learning

Teachers rarely pre-plan work for kids. Nor do they try to impart knowledge to them through whole-class lectures. Instead, they observe kids at work and play, and ask them questions and listen to their ideas. They thereby learn what kids are drawn to and plot out their curriculum accordingly.

Project-based learning

Projects are a big focus in Reggio schools. While they’re sometimes proposed by teachers, they’re mostly initiated by students. Projects open up new areas of exploration for students, allowing them to fully explore their ideas and work them out in detail.

Importance of relationships

Each child’s relationship to their family, peers, teachers, the school environment, and the community is carefully considered. The Reggio classroom is set up to promote lots of interaction. Kids work and interact with each other and their teachers throughout the day. They also sometimes work in class with parents and other members of the community.

Modes of learning

Children use many modes or languages to learn (these are called the “hundred languages”). This includes drawing, painting, music, dance, poetry, stories, and much more. They also use a wide range of materials to express themselves, such as paint, clay, and natural and recycled materials. Reggio kids are encouraged to express themselves in many different kinds of ways.

Parent involvement

Parents are a key part of education. They’re viewed as partners with and advocates for their children. Teachers respect parents as a child’s first teacher. They involve parents in many different parts of school, including learning initiatives, project and curriculum planning, and field trips. Many parents also use some Reggio principles at home.
