Coordination of Movement (Montessori)

Coordination of Movement in Montessori education refers to the development and refinement of motor skills in early childhood.[1] Through independent effort, a child improves their muscular coordination, achieving higher levels of autonomous functioning. Recognizing this developmental need, Montessori environments often feature activities that involve precise and meticulous movement.


Montessori Quotes

  • “The child can only develop by means of experience in his environment. We call such experience ‘work’.[2]
  • “Movement, or physical activity, is thus an essential factor in intellectual growth, which depends upon the impressions received from outside.”[3]
