Maria Montessori’s educational philosophy has been used for over a century in countries throughout the world. Fundamental to her practice was her belief that education should “follow the child,” because she recognized that children seek to construct their understandings of the world through experiences in their environment, and that adults can effectively facilitate learning by preparing an environment and allowing children to choose the materials and experiences within it.
“Education is not what a teacher gives...education is acquired not by listening to words, but by experiences upon the environment.” (MM)
