Maria Montessori agreed with Aristotle's philosophy that there is nothing in the intellect that does not first exist in the senses. In addition, she felt that children experience special blocks of time from birth to the age of six when they are particularly attuned to absorbing academic concepts through their senses.

To make the most of these "sensitive periods," Dr. Montessori created special classroom equipment to develop and refine the five senses. Your child explores these materials and absorbs the educational purpose behind them, thus building a solid foundation for intellectual activity.
