2. Learn Through All Five Senses At Montessori Preschools

All five senses are engaged in Montessori schools. Kids choose their own activities and learn at their own pace. Children are placed in three-year age groups (ages 3-5, for example) and friendships are formed between the younger and older kids.

Your child might do well in a Montessori school if he can concentrate for long periods of time, is self-directed, and can be comfortable with less structure.
