"Dr. Maria Montessori believed that the goal of early childhood education should not be to fill the child with facts from a pre-selected course of studies, but rather to cultivate his own natural desire to learn. In the Montessori classroom this objective is achieved in two ways; first by allowing each child to experience the enormous delight and satisfaction of learning by his own choice; and second, by helping him to perfect all his natural tools for learning so that his ability will be at maximum in future learning situations. The Montessori materials have this dual long-range purpose in addition to their immediate purpose of giving specific information to the child during the most absorbent years between the periods from birth to the age of six. It is upon this philosophy that Montessori educators urge parents to make an investment in your child's education, while the absorbent mind is at its peak for spontaneous learning."
