She started her first classroom “Casa dei Bambini” or Children’s House in 1907. In this first classroom, Montessori observed behaviors in these young children which formed the foundation of her educational method.



This is a special kind of consciousness through which the child absorbs everything from the environment. A different kind of consciousness than that of an adult. The child works unconsciously, is guided by an inner force and helps him to build himself. Absorbing from the environment, the impressions form it, become part of itself - culture, morality, etc.
