A nido, Italian for "nest", serves a small number of children from around two months to around fourteen months, or when the child is confidently walking. It is suggested simply as a general working hypothesis, the value of which must be tested in experience.
Somehow she has come to the conclusion that certain activities are useful, and others are not. The mastery of the alphabet by the Montessori method will be of great assistance in teaching our children to write, but of only incidental assistance in teaching them to read and to spell.
