Infants learn through their senses:
the scent of mom, the sound of birds, the sight of dazzling lights, the touch of a blanket.
Montessori encouraged us to realize this sensory processing with deeper amazement and concentration.
Infants are capable of learning to be independent. This is evidenced by the rapid development of expressive language and motor skills - from lying down to walking, weeping to speaking, all at their own pace.
Dr. Maria Montessori identified two different early childhood capacities that act in concert with these inherent drives: the absorbent mind and sensitive learning periods, both of which exist at birth but only until the age of six.
The Absorbent Mind
Infants and young children have a time-sensitive "absorbent mind," in which learning is as effortless as it can ever be. Infants, like sponges, absorb knowledge just by existing in their environment. Conscious learning does not begin until about the age of three, and prior to that, we are "unconscious learners." We have no recollection of learning at this period, yet we know it was fundamental.
