Four Planes of Development

“These three periods, from birth to six, from six to twelve, and from twelve to eighteen, are clearly distinguishable from one another, in terms of both physical and mental development” – Dr. Montessori

Created by Dr. Montessori, she described four stages of a child’s development that she observed, each which lasts six years, called the Four Planes of Development. The Montessori approach is the same at all ages, but the particular applications of the approach change according to the child’s needs.

“Development is a series of rebirths” – Dr. Montessori
