A Montessori education is based on Dr. Maria Montessori's scientific observations of the young child. Dr. Montessori said: "It is simply an assist to life." She noted that young children learn with great ease by simply "absorbing", like a sponge, everything to which they are exposed, rather than learning through logical analysis. This is called the absorbent mind.
Dr. Montessori's observations coincide with what current research supports -- that is, the foundation for lifelong learning and a happy, whole child is developed in the first few years of life. When the basic physical, emotional, and social needs of a very young child are consistently, respectfully, and joyfully met, the child learns to trust. Feeling safe and secure he or she can begin to explore all the wonders of his or her own self and world.
