The structure of montessori learning involves the use of a wide range of teaching materials with which the child may work individually.
At every step of his learning the apparatus isolates a particular problem, tests the child's understanding, and corrects his errors.
Since movement is an inherent factor in learning, many activities engage the child's large and small muscles, his senses and his mind.
Dr.
Montessori recognized what psychologist Jean Paiget had since related, that the only valid impulse to learning is the child's self-environment that set the behavioral example and offers the child stimulation thus disposing the child to learn by teaching himself, motivated by the excitement of the process, not the end product nor the teacher.
