Creativity/Imagination (Montessori)

In Montessori education, Creativity and Imagination are considered vital aspects of child development and learning. Imagination refers to the ability to conceptualize things not currently present to the senses, while creativity is viewed as the application of imagination to formulate new and innovative ideas.[1] Both are believed to rely on mental imagery developed through sensorial experiences.


Montessori Quotes

  • “Imagination does not become great until human beings, given the courage and the strength, use it to create.”[3]
