The Prepared Environment

There are many benefits to the Montessori style of teaching. Every child is born unique and full of potential. Montessori practice gives them the gift of independence through structured freedom and by allowing to learn at their own pace. This in turn enables the child to learn and grow, unimpeded, encouraging discovery and development. 

In order to achieve this, we must create the ideal learning environment for them. It needs to be structured by careful preparation, to aid the child’s life and natural growth. 

There are many parts to Montessori philosophy,  but this is the one essential bit of knowledge that you must have in order to start bringing Montessori into your home.
