In order to achieve the objectives, through the literature review, a questionnaire (to preschoolers, elderly, teachers/caregivers, and geriatric assistants) and analytical studies of successful preschools improved children’s developmental milestones can reach criteria to apply on case study. Then observations of Alexandria Montessori preschool at Alexandria, Egypt will be taken.
