Brain research is a fairly recent and growing field of study, and we think Dr. Montessori would be excited to learn that her observation and theories about early childhood development are now being examined and supported through scientific research.
We’ll have more to share on Collean’s trip in upcoming posts. For now, you may find Dr. Deak’s book interesting: Your Fantastic, Elastic Brain.
As much as possible, NAMC’s web blog reflects the Montessori curriculum as provided in its teacher training programs. We realize and respect that Montessori schools are unique and may vary their schedules and offerings in accordance with the needs of their individual communities. We hope that our readers will find our articles useful and inspiring as a contribution to the global Montessori community. © the North American Montessori Center - originally posted in its entirety at Montessori Teacher Training on Tuesday, March 20, 2012.
