Montessori Techniques

  • A parent's dialogue with a child is a key element in developing respect with each other. It not only increases verbal skills, but also increases the childs level of trust.
  • We consider nature as a teacher. Today is well known that regular and positive contact with nature not only develops values and attitudes towards life but also strengthens the cognitive, physical, social and emotional development of the child. In that regard, Maria Montessori wrote:

“The child who has felt a strong love for his surroundings and for all living creatures, who has discovered joy and enthusiasm in work, gives us reason to hope that humanity can develop in a new direction”

"Let the children be free; encourage them; let them run outside when it is raining; let them remove their shoes when they find a puddle of water; and, when the grass of the meadows is damp with dew, let them run on it and trample it with their bare feet; let them rest peacefully when a tree invites them to sleep beneath its shade; let them shout and laugh when the sun wakes them in the morning as it wakes every living creature that divides its day between walking and sleeping".
