"What is education for?"

Ask this question to different people and you will get a different answer. Exactly as you can see in the graph below.

Some people believe that education is a process that is lead by a teacher (active) and given to the students (passive).  Other people will claim that “learning” is something that comes naturally to children and they don´t have to be taught.

We respect all opinions, but we do believe that learning is a natural process and that children don´t need to learn how to learn.  They are always learning if you can create the right circumstances for it. 

To say it with a quote of Dr. María Montessori: 

“Education is a natural process carried out by the child and is not acquired by listening to words, but by experiences in the environment.

We couldn´t agree more.  J
