Montessori: The Keys Approach to Life - 1

Do not think of Montessori as a curriculum.

Think of it as a set of keys.

You present a key to the child - this key unlocks a door, a treasure box, a suitcase full of travel gear, so much more!

By presenting these keys to the primary child, you are giving them the world - to explore, to understand, to be part of, to be a steward over.

By presenting the keys to the elementary child, you are giving them the universe - all history and future and present, all people, places, things and ideas. And above all: you are giving them *time*.
