Montessori education can be particularly effective in supporting the development of sensation and perception in children.
Sensitive periods are specific developmental periods in a child’s life where they are particularly receptive to certain experiences and stimuli. These periods are characterized by a heightened sensitivity to certain aspects of the child’s environment and an increased ability to absorb information.
Dr. Maria Montessori was an Italian physician, educator, and innovator, best known for her work in the field of early childhood education. She was born on August 31, 1870, in Chiaravalle, Italy, and died on May 6, 1952, in Noordwijk aan Zee, Netherlands.
