Parents should understand that a Montessori school is neither a baby-sitting service nor a play school that prepares a child for traditional kindergarten, rather, it is a unique cycle of learning designed to take advantage of the child’s sensitive years between three and six, when he can absorb information from an enriched environment. A child who acquires the basic skills of reading and arithmetic in this natural way has the advantage of beginning his education without drudgery, boredom or discouragement. By pursuing his individual interest in a Montessori classroom he gains an early enthusiasm for learning which is the key to the beginning a truly educated person.
