Is it for all children?

Yes and no. Yes, in the sense that Montessori works extremely well with children having a wide range of learning styles and ability levels. At Okemos Public Montessori we have observed that children who seem to especially flourish in our environment are those who are developing an internal sense of discipline and are capable of working independently. Elementary level students who have a difficult time focusing on their work, require constant teacher input and direction, are easily distracted, or have a hard time with transitions, may not find Montessori classrooms to work for them.
