Montessori Principles

Freedom and structure are considered to be the two fundamental poles of Montessori education.

The Montessori method is based upon the liberty of the child – and liberty is activity…. Discipline must come through liberty…

We call an individual “disciplined” when he is master of himself and can regulate his own conduct whenever it is necessary to follow some rules in life….

The liberty of the child should have the collective interest as its limit.
