New Paradigm by Dr. Montessori (cont.)

7) ABSORBENT MIND:

At the beginning of the 20th century, the human brain was still a mystery. No PET scanning machines were available to reveal the activity of the human brain, but Dr. Montessori saw “into” the child through the work the children used with their hands. With her remarkable intuition, almost a century ahead of her time, she realized that the young child is in a unique phase of her life. Learning comes as naturally to her as play. Never again would learning be this easy or real to her life. As Dr. Montessori said, “The child absorbs knowledge directly into his psychic life….impressions do not merely enter his mind, they form it.”

6) MATERIALS:

For Dr. Montessori, the classroom provided an environment for young children that is a growing, living place. It is a reflection of all that is in the world, with a special emphasis upon those things that interest the teacher and children. In her training, our Montessori teacher is challenged “to give the child the world!” Our classrooms display materials, therefore, from all of the areas of learning for the world of the young child: practical living, sensorial, math, language, geography, history, science, art, and music. Our teachers enjoy introducing new handmade or¬†purchased materials and present them with enthusiasm and excitement to¬†our happy children.
