There is a huge misconception that infants don’t need any form of education other than nursery rhymes and bedtime stories told at home. But this, dear reader, is grossly false! As Maria Montessori said, “The greatest of the human personality begins at the hour of birth, so education must start from birth.”
So, what sort of education should infants be exposed to? What sort of school, environment or programme? The first thing, as always, is to think about what the infant needs, then what sort of environment and programme meet the need.
