    Understanding the Four Planes of Development and how they manifest, enables planning for optimal development. Preparation of the environment and subsequent observation of behaviour within it, may only be truly effective if there is knowledge of the universal path that human development takes.

    Dr. Montessori’s theories on human development are intriguing and still progressive in the field of education. If you have been promising yourself a deeper dive into these revelations, now is your chance.

    This monthly series of online workshops are hosted by AMI trainer, Cheryl Ferreira. The 45-minute sessions of exploration and discovery will enrich classroom application. Although aimed at Montessori teachers and assistants, everyone interested in a richer understanding of Dr. Montessori’s writings is welcome.

    Sessions take place on the first Tuesday of each month at 4.30pm and each is independent - attend all or just one.

    The greatness of the human personality begins at the hour of birth. From this almost mystic affirmation there comes what may seem a strange conclusion: that education must start from birth. Strange, because, how, in a practical sense, can we educate a newborn babe, or even an infant during the first two years of his life? What lessons shall we give to this tiny being who understands nothing of what we say, and cannot even move his limbs?

    Maria Montessori, The Absorbent Mind

    "We can imagine an adult society organized as a constructive society on the same lines as the children’s – that is, along the lines of this naturally cohesive society. Attachment to other people is the first stage, bringing men to work together towards a common goal."

    Maria Montessori, The 1946 London Lectures

    These periods correspond to special sensibilities to be found in creatures in process of development; they are transitory and confined to the acquisition of a determined characteristic. 

    Growth is thus not something vague, an inexorable innate heredity, but a labor guided meticulously by transitory instincts which bring an urge to determined activities.

    Maria Montessori, Ch.3 The Secret of Childhood

    Why does a leader become a leader? Because by the ideologies he expounds, he becomes the point of crystallization of some vague feeling that many (who later become the followers) have within them, but of which they are not clearly conscious. When someone appears stating clearly that which gives an answer to their feelings, he becomes a leader. Once he has become a leader and he has aroused confidence and enthusiasm, he may be followed even to disaster if the followers have not got a basis in reality. This is what Dr. Montessori meant when she said, 'We must help the child after six to fulfil his tendencies. They now urge him to understand no longer, as previously, only the immediate environment, but also that which is not accessible to his sensorial exploration'.
