Every element of Montessori methodology is designed for…

Haskins, Cathleen – Montessori Life: A Publication of the American Montessori Society, 2010
The early 1960s was a critical, albeit chaotic, period for the revival of the Montessori movement, which had been recently rekindled in the United States.
