The Four Planes of Development

Dr. Montessori said,

“Trust the spontaneous, organizing power of the human intellect”.

“The human mind works by itself, moved by a power within.”

Each plane displays different characteristics and needs to be treated accordingly.

The first and the secound plane are the stage of childhood, the third and the fourth plane the stage of adult hood. There are parallels between the first and the third periods. They are the periods of greatest physical growth and transformation. The second and the fourth peiod have the parallels of great internal growth and development.

The greatest change occurs during the first three years in both planes (0-3)(12-15). The secound three years strengthen and customize, perfect and stabilize then growth and tranformation that took place during the first three years.
