What Is Montessori Science:
Maria Montessori believed in introducing children to as many things as possible and allowing them to explore the world around them.
We love scientific activities because they help promote a sense of inquiry in all children. They answer the Why, What, When, Who and How, which are some of the words that come naturally to children from an early age.
