Maria Montessori believed that children pass through phases called “sensitive periods.” These are developmental windows of opportunity during which the child can learn specific concepts more easily and naturally than at any other time in their lives. The Toddler aged child is in the sensitive period for the refinement of the senses. The Toddler classroom exposes the child to a wide array of sensorial experiences (taste, smell, sounds, weight and touch) resulting in the child learning to observe and make increasingly discerning sensorial discrimination.
Exposure to food work in the practical life activities make up one of the most important areas of Montessori education. As toddlers grow and become more curious they want to be more involved in everyday routines. Food preparation and cooking are not only some of the most fun lessons, but they help with the child’s sense of order, concentration, coordination, independence and exploration.
Toddlers LOVE to cook!
This article talks about simple ways your child can help with food prep at home.
