Dr. Maria Montessori believed:
Since a child is motivated by a natural curiosity and a love of knowledge and discovery, a special environment (physically and psychologically prepared with intriguing, didactic equipment) will stimulate early learning;
The life of a child is a developmental continuum with each stage having its base in the preceding one and, in turn, preparing for the next;
A child must be motivated from within in order to become a lifelong learner;
Building a child’s self-esteem is paramount. Only with high self-esteem will a child develop the inner motivation for thinking and acting independently and responsibly.
“A child must be motivated from within in order to become a lifelong learner.”
