In this paper first the philosophical basics of preschool education from viewpoint of Montessori is discussed and then the key concepts of education in this theory is analyzed and the descriptive-analytical method is used for this analysis. Finally the fundamental elements of preschool curriculum are examined from its viewpoint.
