Nice article about Montessori. "Any true Montessori environment encourages children to move about freely and choose their own work within reasonable limits of appropriate behavior.....Through freedom within limits, the child can develop independence and self-confidence as well as respect for both him- or herself and others."

"Somewhere along the way, our culture adopted the idea that learning wasn't fun - that to inspire children, we needed to entertain them. We needed to stimulate their interests and reward them for their efforts. It didn't matter if they accomplished the task, or were even inspired by the activity, just so long as they were happily entertained. What this path misunderstands, which is a key observation that the Italian educator Maria Montessori offered, is that children are born naturally inquisitive. You don't have to force them to learn - and, most importantly, you don't have to sugar coat their successes, any more than their failures. Children inherently, one could say biologically, see the world as an opportunity to discover their interests."
