Absorbent Mind

“From birth through approximately age 6, the young child experiences a period of intense mental activity that allows her to “absorb” learning from her environment without conscious effort, naturally and spontaneously.”

Dr. Montessori wrote a book called “The Absorbent Mind”. She believed strongly in this theory of child development and centered much of her work on it. Birth – 6 years old is subdivided into subconscious and conscious periods, and, furthermore, into sensitive periods for order, language, movement, refinement of the senses, math and manners.

    My daughter was in an Early Childhood Development Center for kids with special needs and her teacher had a Montessori classroom. It was very good for Sarah. She loved going to school. I think it was helpful because of the step-by-step logical sequencing, repetitiveness, routine and stability factors. I liked it because it felt natural – using wooden materials, water, etc. for learning.
