Toddler Parent Education: What the Hand Does, the Mind Remembers
On Wednesday, September 27, 4:30-5:30, Toddler Teachers Remzije Shala, Toshia Johnson, and Zaiba Farooqui will lead a discussion and Q&A about how Toddlers construct themselves by using their hands. One of the things that distinguishes Montessori from traditional education is that children are encouraged to learn by touching, feeling, and doing rather than sitting and only listening. Toddlers move about the classroom and explore the materials with their hands, making discoveries for themselves. When children work with their hands, they gain long-term, concrete understanding and many more neural connections. This understanding and those connections sow the seeds for abstract learning as they progress to the next academic levels.
The hands are the instruments of man’s intelligence. – Dr. Maria Montessori
