The Montessori Environment - Infants, Toddlers and Primary

            The adult should provide an environment rich in raw material for both physical and psychological development. 

For the child up to age three it is the adult’s responsibility to become enlightened in how to provide proper stimuli, since at this age, the child is not capable of stating what he needs or of locating it within a cluttered inappropriate environment. 

The environment should be a living one, in which people interact, things are touched and manipulated, the child can actively participate in everything he sees, and the child is kept in this living environment, not sequestered off to a separate environment, apart from all adults except a nurse. 

There should be real activities and lots of language.
