People have very different impressions of Montessori education.
The Montessori Foundation and International Montessori Council celebrate diversity. Just as no two children are the same, neither are Montessori school communities.
No matter how you regard the school, you must realize as parents that, you have the greatest influence on your child’s life because of your unique love. No one knows and cares for your child as well as you do. Educate means “to lead”. As parents, you have the special opportunity to lead the child into activities which are your hobbies, your chores, your spiritual and intellectual life, and your appreciation for the environment.
The Montessori classroom is a “living room” for children. Extending out from all directions are open shelves with bright arrays of solid geometric solids, knobbed puzzle maps, colored beads, metal templates and various specialized blocks and rods. In another corner are a small child’s sink, a cutting board, a dish pan and real china dishes. Nearby stand an ironing board, a clothes rack and a wash basin with a scrubbing board. The room invites activity.
A child interacts with the physical world through her senses. From birth, she will look, listen, touch, taste, pick up, manipulate, and smell almost anything.
At first, everything goes into the mouth, but gradually the child begins to explore each object’s weight, texture, and temperature.
