What is Practical Life?

    The Practical Life exercises are the beginning point in a Montessori classroom.

    Dr. Maria Montessori considers this area the foundation of the classroom and was convinced that these exercises are vastly important to the child. A Montessori teacher should put extra care in this area because Practical Life Exercises are a means for the child to become 'normalized'.
