the absorbent mind


the Absorbent Mind is the name #Montessori gives to the child under six years because she felt the infant has a quantitavely different mind than that of the older child and adult. The absorbent mind absorb to all of his experiences in the same way as a sponge he soaks up his surroundings good and bad, positive and negative, useful or useless… they absorb all! The senses allow the Absorbent Mind to explore the world through hearing, seeing, touching, tasting, smelling and moving the immediate social environment is stored from the moment of conception and these experiences form the basis of the intellect, memory and will, when the infant reaches two and a half the experiences stored will be acted upon by a conscious worker who consolidates the unconscious learning which took place earlier.
