Understanding the Montessori Method

"Maria Montessori encourages her teachers and parents to assist the child in fostering his human tendencies with environments and materials being created to allow the child to explore, to orientate himself, to order, to communicate, to work, to correct his own error, to repeat and work toward exactness, to quantify, and to abstract and work toward self-perfection. Maria calls this work the Montessori Method".

"From the child, the teacher can learn a transforming element, a new approach to educating, if she has the intention and patience to respect the inner sanctum of the child's creative center, a fundamental principle of the Montessori Method."
