The Prepared Environment
The Montessori classroom is a carefully prepared environment for the children. Everything has been selected with their specific developmental needs in mind. The materials were developed through years of careful observation of children. Dr. Montessori brought a scientific approach to the classroom and now research has validated her theories of pediatric development. Dr. Steven Hughes, Ph.D., former president of the American Academy of Pediatric Neuropsychology, has said that “She anticipated so much of what we know about neuroscience, brain development, and optimum models of education.”
