The fundamental principle of Maria Montessori’s method is that children are naturally motivated to learn.
She developed a sensory education method which respects the child’s learning pace. Learning is achieved through sensorial development and particularly through encouraging the use of the hands. Children are given brief, clear lessons, and then large blocks of time to choose work that interests them, while guiding their learning and ensuring balance in the acquisition of various types of knowledge and topics.
