 The Montessori classroom is a child-sized world. Whatever is in the outside world can be incorporated meaningfully in the Montessori classroom. Carefully selected materials and exercises create an environment that allows the child to explore the world at a level he can understand, enticing the child to proceed independently at his own pace from simple activities to more complex ones. Through this process, the child's natural curiosity is satisfied and he begins to experience the joy of discovering the world around him. There are 5 distinguishing areas of a Montessori classroom:  
 Practical Life  
 The exercises in this area enable the child to become independent individuals by learning how to care for themselves and their environment. These exercises help the child develop concentration and coordination skills.  
 The sensorial materials help the child distinguish, classify and categorize sensory impressions by isolating one defining quality such as color, weight, size, sound, texture, etc.  
 These materials help the child make concrete representations of abstract mathematical concepts. The materials allow the child to demonstrate to himself many mathematical operations, which eventually develops into early enthusiasm for numbers.  
 The language materials foster and enrich oral language development, written expression, reading skills and grammar. The exercises allow the child to interrelate the phonetic sounds of the alphabet and their symbols quickly and easily.  
 The cultural subjects that are a part of the Montessori program are art, music, dance, history, geography and biology.   
 The Montessori Method of teaching was developed by Dr. Maria Montessori, the first female medical doctor in Italy. Dr. Montessori's philosophy is based upon her careful observations of children and it was from these observations that Dr. Montessori concluded that the most important period of life is from birth to 6 years. She believed that every child carries unseen within himself the person that he will become.
