Montessori Curriculum and Philosophy
The basic principle of the Montessori philosophy is that each child carries within himself the potential of the adult he will become. In the Montessori environment, each child is allowed to move and talk at will, and to work alone or in groups, with the understanding that the feelings and rights of others must always be respected.
The overall aim, then, is to develop within the child a love of learning that will increase independent functioning in all life skill areas.
“Learning is a natural process carried out by the human individual, and is acquired not by listening to words, but by experiences in the environment”
~ Maria Montessori
