Children are natural observers. They are fascinated by the phenomenon found in the natural world and interact with the natural world everywhere they go. They investigate things like what flowers smell like and how a leaf feels. The Montessori program recognizes the young child’s need to observe and absorb information about the world around them.
Encountering something new in nature sparks a child’s curiosity and leads to a spontaneous lesson as the child asks “What is this? What is it called? How does it feel/smell/taste/sound?” These sensor-ally based questions are concrete evidence of the child’s stage of development therefore, our students are introduced to a wide array of scientific principles.
