Maria Montessori said that it is not the child that is shaped by adults, but every human being is shaped by the child that he once was.
His whole future life will depend on how the child develops, what he experiences, how he is motivated and supported. The environment in which he grows up plays a decisive role here. Is it full of bans and inaccessible objects, limits the possibility of satisfying curiosity, is it properly prepared to enable it to develop all spheres of activity?
In Montessori kindergartens, the activity and dynamism of a child’s work are combined with silence and focus. Children have time to discover for themselves. This is a place where childhood is a time of peaceful growth.
