It is a short work, intended as a manual for teachers and parents, detailing the materials used as well as her philosophy in developing them. "As a result of the widespread interest that has been taken in my method of child education, certain books have been issued, which may appear to the general reader to be authoritative expositions of the Montessori system.

The furniture of the dining-room consists, in addition to the tables, of low cupboards accessible to all the children, who can themselves put in their place and take away the crockery, spoons, knives and forks, table-cloth and napkins. The plates are always of china, and the tumblers and water-bottles of glass. Knives are always included in the table equipment.

The Dressing-room. Here each child has his own little cupboard or shelf. In the middle of the room there are very simple washstands, consisting of tables, on each of which stand a small basin, soap and nail-brush. Against the 14 wall stand little sinks with water-taps.

Just beautiful! A wonderful philosophy for rearing and schooling children, focusing on patiently nurturing the human spirit. Memo for next life: make sure Mom sends me to a Montessori school :)

Notes :

“This kind of school… ought to be a real house; that is to say, a set of rooms with a garde

Hugely insightful, and delivered in such an accessible way.
P.s. the huge read dates (Oct 19-Jan 20) is primarily because I took a month off of reading Montessori materials when I submitted my application of training!

This was a very interesting book. It gives an insight into Montessori’s ideas and teaching methods. The book had me convinced that her “scientific” methods being administered nowadays in preschools are a great base for education.

Good overview of the Montessori Method of guiding children to learn, and observing them as they learn.
