Love of Learning

Love of Learning

Children are born with an innate love of learning and a desire to refine their skills. There is a flame burning within each child which pushes him ever-forward to build the adult he or she will one day become. Montessori teachers are specially trained to nurture this love of learning to support the child’s effort. In the classroom, there is a freedom within limits. Teachers understand each child’s needs and interests so they can encourage him or her in the appropriate direction at the appropriate time. In so doing, the child develops the ability to make appropriate choices. This is known as “following the child.”
