CURRICULUM: PRACTICAL LIFE
The exercises for practical life prepares the child indirectly for all other areas of the curriculum with order, concentration, coordination and independence.

These exercises lay the foundation for all the other subject areas in the Montessori classroom.

"Any child who is self-sufficient, who can tie his shoes, dress or undress himself, reflects in his joy and sense of achievement the image of human dignity, which is derived from a sense of independence." Maria Montessori
