"Montessori education allows a child to construct himself while acquiring inner discipline and self-control. It allows freedom but not license.
The preschool provides a safe place for a child to grow and learn, enhanced by a ratio of ten to one. "Individualized Education" is the forerunner in all areas of the program.
The Montessori method stresses the most sensitive periods of childhood with
particular emphasis on the first six years. A sensitive period is defined as a time
when a child has the greatest capacity for a particular learning.
These periods are transitory and serve the purpose of helping a child acquire certain functions or determined characteristics. When this aim is accomplished, the special sensibility dies away
and is often replaced by another, which is completely different.
