Freedom of Movement is one of the key factors
in the Montessori Approach. This desire and need
begins from birth; parents observe their newborn
with deep fascination while watching their child
figure out leg and arm movements, control of
the head and use of the mouth. Movements
such as suckling and rooting begin as reflexes
for survival but soon purposeful movements are
noticed more each day as the child heads closer
to infancy. Before we know it, infants are reaching
and crawling all over the house. This is when the
Prepared Environment becomes more important
than ever and attention to safety is pivotal.
