Practical Life means basic, useful and purposeful way of living.
Hence the Practical life Exercises that were created by Maria Montessori are just that. They are simple activities that the child can learn how to do in a purposeful way.
Why Practical Life is Important?
The main aim of Practical Life is to help the child to gain control in the coordination of his movement, concentration, order and gain independence.
These Practical Life Exercises also help in the growth and development of the child’s intellect which in in turn will also help the child develop an order in his way thinking and his daily activities.
It is especially important for children between the ages of 0 to 6.
During this sensitive period the child is developing his inner self and there are sensitive periods for different skills and activities..
It is therefore necessary for the child to be participating in Practical Life activities that prepare him for his environment.
These activities will also allow him develop social skills to grow independently and refine his fine motor skills.
