The Montessori Childhood Course combines the theoretical exposition of fundamental concepts to understand the nature of the child, with the presentation of several representative activities of the different working areas between three and six years. We will introduce the bases of Montessori philosophy offering examples to facilitate its understanding. We will delve into the adult’s way of working, through observation, to assess the possibilities of each child as a starting point and thus guide them, taking into account their interests and needs.
At the age of three, the second substage of the first stage of development begins. The child has experienced different achievements, such as beginning to walk and speak, among other things. You have completed the phase of more intense absorption and the foundation of your autonomy and, therefore, of your self-esteem, now you can expand your learning.
The child must organize a large number of impressions and the opportunity to be active with scientifically determined materials, in a prepared environment, favor the emergence of the mathematical mind. The special sensitivity towards language is taken advantage of, which facilitates the increase of vocabulary and the beginning of writing and reading. The development of the will is also promoted and little by little, the awakening of the social sense.
This is an essential stage where the bases of personality and character are built. The objective of Montessori Childhood Course is to know its characteristics in order to better understand and help children.
THE PREPARED ENVIRONMENT:
The attitude of the adult in the family is of vital importance, so that it offers a close presence, but not invasive, and that the child can develop fully, in an environment without permissiveness or authoritarianism. The order in the objects and the routines is a key help in the first years, as well as the accommodation of the spaces, so that they allow autonomy.
