The Montessori Philosophy
The principles of the Montessori Method are contained in these five basic ideas:
1. Respect for the child
2. The absorbent mind
3. Sensitive developmental periods
4. The prepared environment
Montessori emphasizes learning through all five senses, not just through listening, watching, or reading. Children in Montessori classes learn at their own individual pace and according to their own choice of activities from hundreds of possibilities. Learning is an exciting process of discovery, leading to concentration, motivation, self-discipline, and a love of learning. Montessori classes form communities in which the older children spontaneously share their knowledge with the younger ones.
