The Prepared Environment is an important part of the triad that makes up the Montessori Method. The resources included here are intended to provide you with ideas for creating and/or expanding your space to help optimize learning outcomes by thinking in new ways about what a classroom is and what it can be. When thinking about the “prepared environment” consider how its elements reflect the learning process as developed by Dr. Montessori, for example the significance of of nature, the importance of movement, classroom management, materials and their use and storage, etc. Don’t miss our other Online Resources pages that cover areas such as Teaching and Instruction, Childhood Health and Safety, Educational Technology, Social and Emotional Learning (SEL), Educational Technology, and Curriculum.
We continue to add resources as we find and review them, so be sure and check the pages often.
