Frequent Asked Questions

  • Why uniforms?
    Many parents may be surprised to consider uniforms at such a young age, but uniforms are helpful not just to the students but to parents and teachers as well. Most importantly, uniforms eliminate distractions and competition in the classroom. This frees the child to focus on their classroom activities and develop their inner self. The uniform places children in a “school” frame of mind. Families who have taken advantage of the uniforms report stress-free mornings and relief from unnecessary clothing negotiations with their children. Children are encouraged to show their individuality not through what they wear but rather their actions, efforts, and personality.
  • How do uniforms support the Montessori curriculum?
    As mentioned above, uniforms eliminate competition between students, promote concentration by minimizing classroom distractions, and perhaps most importantly, uniforms encourage independence both at school and at home. Children who wear uniforms know exactly what to wear each day. Children can retrieve their clothes without discussion, make the choices allowed within the confines of the uniform policy and dress themselves. The beauty of the uniform is that they are simple in design and construction so children can manage on their own, both at home and at school. This is especially helpful for children who are toilet learning as these students benefit from simple, easy-to-manage clothing. Lastly, uniforms promote the concepts of beauty and order, which are fundamental elements of the Montessori philosophy as uniforms are appealing to the eye and create an expected order in the child’s dress. Overall, uniforms provide children another opportunity to experience “freedom within limits,” a defining characteristic of Montessori education.
