Early childhood development, an educational method, and the relation of the child to society. The new-born child who is not only a body ready to function as a body, but also has a spiritual embryo with latent psychic capacities. The essence of the Montessori Method. Learn from the children, observing, helping, presenting, rather than teaching or forcing. The adult must play a low-key role; the child chooses his own materials to work with and learns from them because they interest him. Free choice creates concentration, no punishment and reward.
