We regularly correct misconceptions about the Montessori Method. Some parents believe that children are given too much freedom and the didactic materials are play toys, making Montessori children look like they play too much and learn a little. Others frown at vertical grouping because they fear that the classroom will be crowded. Some say the children are slower to write when compared to their counterparts in traditional schools or they are not being prepared for exams.
