|"Help me to do it alone." ~M. Montessori|
A montessori environment is designed and created with each and every child in mind. There is no gender specific work in a montessori classroom and children need to know they can do anything. It goes the same way with colour. We have been saying, "boys can where pink and purple too!"
"Education ~ is a natural process carried out by the child and is not acquired by listening to words but by experiences in the environment."
An so it is that we "create" these opportunities or spaces to work in so that the child can experience and know that he or she can do anything!
