"The purpose of the Montessori education is to help each child develop within him or herself skills for a lifetime of creative learning. It is to develop the basic ideas attitudes, and skills essential for success in school and life! A thirst for learning: habits of concentration, sense of order, independence, control of movement functional creativity, and self confidence. In the Montessori classroom there are two ways to approach this: first, by allowing each child to experience the excitement of hands-on jobs by exploring his own choice rather than by being forced; second, by helping to perfect all of the child's natural tools for learning, so that his or her ability will be at a maximum in future learning situations. The Montessori materials have this dual long range purpose in addition to the immediate purpose of giving specific information to the child.
