“When a child is given a little leeway, he will at once shout, ’I want to do it!’ But in our schools, which have an environment adapted to children’s needs, they say, ‘Help me to do it alone.’”
We have carefully selected and developed materials that are safe and relevant for the Montessori Toddler environment. Maria Montessori said, “Education cannot be effective unless it helps a child to open himself to life.”
As parents, we must always keep in mind that this is the stage of development when the seeds of personality are sewn, and it is essential that we guide, not dictate the direction they take. Provide the environment and “Follow the Child”.
