Follow the child: Maria Montessori’s approach on the first three years of life

María Montessori’s life overlapped two prolific and troubled centuries, a time of great advances in knowledge and also of great conflicts. Her career was always guided by the same impulse: unlocking the creative potential of the human being to build a world in peace.

As a result of her investigations, she identified and developed a series of principles that make up his theory of development, currently supported by advances in neuroscience., Thus, it invites us to know and understand how, why and when the different milestones of development happen, from a scientific and global perspective, identifying and valuing the singularities of their manifestations and the importance they have for education.

By learning about The Absorbing Mind and Sensory Periods, we will understand why the first years of life are fundamental for learning and developing personality.

Through the Stages of development and human tendencies, we will understand the needs and manifestations of children.

We will also discuss aspects to consider when providing childcare from birth, from a deep respect for the rhythm and their needs.

To respond to the great potential of the child, Montessori pedagogy focuses on three fundamental elements: the prepared environment, the materials and the adult as a facilitator of learning.

Between the first years of life, two levels are distinguished in the school environment:

The Nest

It embraces toddlers from the first months to approximately 18 months. A serene and warm space, where rich sensory experiences, free movement are offered and language development is promoted.

The Children’s Community

The environment for walkers, in order, where children experiment with materials and activities from all working areas, cultivating the “I can do it!” attitude.


Montessori materials

The Montessori method offers us a wide range of ideas for the selection and creation of suitable materials for the development of different skills, such as:

  • Sensory experiences
  • Development of motor coordination
  • Cognitive development
  • Language experiences
  • Practical Life Activities

Emmi Pikler and autonomous development

The inclusion of Emmi Pikler’s contributions regarding autonomous development is already traditional in a large part of the prepared Montessori 0-3 environments of the world. Her studies on postural development and her practical proposals on emotional accompaniment and respect for the child’s natural rhythms, as well as his recommendations on furniture and materials, form an unbeatable complement to Montessori training, and for this reason it is offered as an enriching element of the seminar.
