Brooksfield Montessori school, located a few miles from Arlington, VA, offers a Montessori education that incorporates some traditional activities and other beneficial educational experiences. In the classrooms on their lovely 5-acre campus, children are taught to work independently as well as in small groups. They are taught to manage their time and play a part in their own education by moving about the classroom, choosing work that interests and intrigues them. They are also encouraged to explore new concepts and ideas through teacher-recommended activities. However, Brooksfield teachers also sprinkle-in large group instruction as well as opportunities for children to put pencil to paper in a more traditional style, sometimes making use of workbooks and printed worksheets to supplement the hands-on curriculum. It is this kind of flexibility, open-mindedness and forethought that makes Brooksfield a leader amongst private schools and helps prepare the children for any kind of school they may encounter in their later years.
