One of the principles of Montessori education is that school is not the place in which teacher transmits knowledge, but the place where intelligence and the psyche of the child are developed through a free work with specialized training materials. In other words, the classroom is the space in which a child decides what knowledge he wants to achieve and how he wants to do it.

Maria Montessori argued that each individual had to do things for himself, because otherwise he would never learn them. According to her, “an educated person continues learning after hours and years spend in a classroom, because is internally motivated by a natural curiosity, as well as the love of learning”.
