In the Montessori programs, children are viewed as positive beings whose primary aim is to work of constructing an adult. Rewards and punishments, therefore, can only get in the way. Development and learning by themselves are adequate motivators. Likewise, children do not need to be appealed to through fantasy, bright colors, or gimmicks, as these things come between the child and real learning. Therefore, joy is discovered and experienced in the real worked through the study of nature, science, math, music, reading, history, and geography rather than in an unrealistic fantasy.
