“Children acquire knowledge through experience in [their] environment”
The Montessori philosophy capitalizes on five areas of study within children’s environments: Practical Life, Sensorial, Language, Mathematics, and Cultural Studies, which include: Geography, Physical and Life Science, History, Music, and Art.
