Montesssori believed a child to be "sensory explorer". A child explores the environment through the five senses. Through these sensorial explorations knowledge is created. A child also begins the complex process of organization and classification.
A child has attained culturally relevant language skills from 0-3 years . Within the prepared environment of a preschool the child will now start using the language through symbol recognition, sounds, names of objects and pre- writing.
Math to the young child is introduced through linear counting whereby the child through their senses counts physical quantities first, then relates them to the number symbols first from 0-10 and then to higher order numbers.
