The Montessori approach

One of the pillars of the Montessori view regarding development in the 0-3 age stage is confidence in the innate potential of children. As adults, we influence their development by repeating ways of doing without prior reflection.

  • What guidelines can we follow to promote their autonomy?
  • When to intervene and how to act?

Favouring their physical autonomy during the first years of life will contribute to the intellectual autonomy that will develop in their childhood and will strengthen their moral autonomy in youth. The activities of daily life during this stage will allow the development of intelligence.

  • Should we buy Montessori materials or can we use everyday objects?
  • What objects should be present in your environment?

The acquisition of autonomous movements and full motor development is benefited by the design of the environment together with appropriate clothing. Our customs must contribute to creating a rich and stimulating literacy environment for language development.

  • How do we promote reading? What criteria should we follow?
  • How do we enrich your orality?

Advantages of autonomy

Autonomy favours:

  • Self-confidence.
  • Trust with the world around.
  • Motivation before new challenges.

The absorbent mind

Dr. Montessori believes that children have the ability to build themselves thanks to the great absorption capacity of their mind. Fostering physical, moral, and intellectual autonomy is a progressive process that takes place from birth in which it is necessary:

Order and orientation with space.


Manipulation and activity.

The repetition.

The environment

To promote the freedom and independence of children it is necessary:

  • An environment to explore freely.
  • An environment of trust, affection and closeness.
  • Activities that stimulate senses.

Building an ideal environment conducive to freedom of movement allows our children to experience their physical environment and improve the control of their body. As adults we should not set limits.

The course offers the precise tools for designing activities and the necessary guidelines to integrate them into our daily life, both at home and in activities carried out outdoors.

The role of the adult

When is our help timely? What can you do alone? Normally, adults are used to intervening automatically, preventing the child’s autonomous development.

For this reason, we must take into account:

  • The observation.
  • Safety.
  • Allow mistakes.
  • The routines.

Activity design

Involving children in our daily activities at home and in the classroom will improve their autonomy and safety. In addition, we will promote these skills by devising activities that take into account:

  • Contact with living beings.
  • The diversity of materials.
  • Improving physical and mental abilities.


This course offers us a broad look at the development of orality, the first spellings, the vocabulary and the expression of emotions. In addition, it indicates the resources to stimulate it at home, the materials to use and what type of communicative situations to promote.
