A Love of Nature

We often talk about how Montessori encourages independence in young children, but did you know it also fosters a love of science and nature? Here a young student is sequencing the lifecycle of a butterfly using realistic picture cards and 3D animal figures. Montessori loves to bring nature and care of the natural world into our classrooms, as well as bringing the children outside into nature for them to experience and appreciate the physical world around them.
