A collage of some of the Montessori Practical Life activities in our classrooms. Practical life activities build a foundation on which the children will grow and carry over into the other areas of the classroom, and over in to their every day life. The Montessori Practical Life exercises respond to the need for Order, Movement, Sensorial Exploration and a Child's Love of Work. Practical Life activities feed their natural desire to work, and play an active role in their environment.
