Maria Montessori was determined to design a curriculum that would reflect all the major areas of human skills and knowledge in a format specially designed to appeal to young children. Montessori materials typically “teach” concepts or skills in isolation, and materials are “self-correcting,” allowing children to learn on their own through play, experimentation, and trial and error. This approach encourages children to work independently and at their own pace, while presenting concepts in the only real way a young person can understand–in a concrete, three-dimensional format that they can see, touch, hear, smell, and manipulate.
Across all subject areas, Montessori education emphasizes compassion, respect for others, and individual initiative.
