The child ages 18 months-3 years thrives in a warm, nurturing environment as they develop a sense of security and independence away from the home. From birth to 3 years is the period the personality is developed. During this formative age, a child learns more than in any other period. This is the formative period for personality, trust, thinking, problem solving, and separation.
“Help me to do it by myself.”~ Dr. Maria Montessori
