As children are introduced to Montessori materials, they have the freedom to learn according to their own individual needs and capabilities.

While using the activities in the following areas of the Montessori classroom, children develop order, concentration, coordination, independence:

  • Practical Life: pouring, spooning, cutting, crafts
  • Sensorial: shapes, sequence, gradation
  • Math: reading and writing numbers, addition
  • Language: phonics, reading, writing
  • Geography: puzzle maps of the continents

The activities change as the developmental level of the child changes.

Dr. Montessori’s rule was “never do for a child what he is capable of doing for himself.”
