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*.
