Curso Montessori 0-3

Dr. Montessori maintained that education should be an aid to the development of life from birth and that the experiences of the first years determine the future adult. This is reflected in one of his best-known phrases: The child is the father of man.

Her main contribution to pedagogy was to discover the secret of childhood, that is, the potential of the child and his ability to learn effortlessly, to build himself and adapt to the historical moment and the environment that surrounds him.

This approach also emphasizes that the only way to achieve social transformation is to educate for peace, which begins by understanding the child’s needs and responding to them with respect; In addition, a harmonious coexistence between the child and the adult is favored.

The Montessori method has been successfully practiced for more than a century, in different cultural and social settings; neurosciences and other related disciplines continue to confirm their scientific bases day by day.

The preparation of suitable spaces in the family and school context will allow children between the ages of zero and three to establish solid foundations for their optimal motor, cognitive, emotional and social development.

Understanding the needs of the child and responding to them from the respect, also favors a harmonious coexistence between the child and the adult.
