THE MONTESSORI PHILOSOPHY
Maria Montessori’s greatest strength was her ability to observe. She has observed that children have a unique potential. A quotation from Maria Montessori, which touches me very much and summarizes much of her pedagogy:
“Children are guests who ask for the way”.
The basis of Montessori pedagogy is to see the child with his/her own personality and needs and to give him/her the freedom to develop.
The child should be able to discover themselves and their environment on their own. Both the environment and the material he/she deal with play a central role. It is intended to encourage the child to decide for him-/herself, to choose for him-/herself and thus to develop an independent way of working.
Our design kid’s furniture from COCLICO is geared to this: it is a furniture collection that the children can move for the most part independently and can always use according to their ideas.
