7. How many students are typically in a classroom?

Unlike some private schools, which strive for very small classes, Montessori values the lessons of community when the size of the class is somewhat larger. 

Montessori classes for children above the infant & toddler level might include 20–30 students whose ages span 3 years. All members of the community benefit from this set-up. Older students are proud to act as role models; younger ones feel supported and gain confidence about the challenges ahead. Classes for infants & toddlers are smaller, with typically 10–15 children.
