57 Montessori practice and the Early Years Foundation Stage The unique child Every child is a competent learner from birth, who can be resilient, capable, confident and self-assured. The four aspects identified as essential in supporting the characteristics of the unique child are: 1. knowledge of child development 2. inclusive practice 3. keeping safe 4. health and well-being. From the Montessori perspective, these aspects are interpreted as follows: ● Children’s development is identified in three distinct and unique stages, which are described in Chapter 2.

Taste and smell: the child does activities involving food, including cooking, and learns about flowers, fruits and vegetables in cultural lessons. The activities available in the sensorial area offer children keys to the universe (Montessori 1988a) – points of reference to key concepts such as shape, size and so on. They are organised in such a way as to support assimilation and accommodation of schemas, and so contribute towards concept formation through the manipulative nature of the activities.

In the Montessori classroom, children are also introduced to grammar using colour-coding for parts of speech and building sentences with the help of objects. These activities offer sensorial introduction to grammar and also serve as extra reading opportunities. Wherever possible, we offer the child objects that can be manipulated in order to both prompt and scaffold the child’s learning. As explained previously, due to the early age at which children leave Montessori nurseries in England, it is the phonological awareness and general pre-reading activities such as storytelling, using books with props or sequencing of stories that prepare children for more systematic literacy work in primary schools.
