In Montessori education, Repetition refers to the repeated engagement of a child with a particular activity. Unlike adults who typically work towards an external objective, young children work towards internal goals. Thus, they often repeat an activity until their inner objective is met. This urge to repeat activities is driven by the child’s intrinsic motivation and contributes to the refinement of their movements and the acquisition of new abilities.
