Most pediatricians are concerned about children making milestones within a certain age. Some people think that Montessori education should not worry about a child’s milestones in development. I know that we write down dates when a child accomplishes certain tasks in a Montessori preschool classroom because it gives insight to a child’s development and readiness for more complex activities. It’s also a way to know if a child needs remedial help. So keep on writing down your’s child’s accomplishments. It’s important to know that kids reach milestones at their own pace, some things come earlier and some things come later. It’s all good!
