How does Montessori's understanding of the child influenced her view of education?

Updated: Jul 9, 2022

Inspired by Dr. Maria Montessori to provide the materials and environment that will aid development, Nature's Materials has a great selection of materials that could be found in a typical Montessori classroom.


Since Montessori schools are based upon the principle that "...the child, not the teacher, is the construction of man, and so for society...," it is felt that the "human teacher can only help the work being done..." "Education is not what the teacher gives; education is a natural process spontaneously carried out by the human individual, and is acquired not by listening to words, but by experiences upon the environment." Therefore, the teacher's job is to provide the materials and environment to aid development and be ready to respond when help is needed.
