The House of Children. Lecture, Kodaikanal, 1944
Montessori, Maria
NAMTA Journal, v38 n1 p11-19 Win 2013
This article vividly describes the indoor and outdoor components of what Montessori calls Home Sweet Home. Her vision of a domestic Children's House contains many facets: rooms of varied space, beautiful flooring, gardens that educate and evoke collaboration, and places for year-round exercise. This is a definitive yet rare Montessori article that shows the profound overlap of both natural and man-made spaces in a house designed for children.
