Montessori Method tells us that the teachers working with infants have to shoulder more responsibility than a university teacher. Maria Montessori introduced" NEW EDUCATION" where all the areas of personality of a child are developed. Through this method of new education children are free to develop their unified personality. This method helps the teachers to prepare the environment for the child which should be a combination of freedom, structure and order, atmosphere and beauty, reality and nature, Montessori equipments and development of community life. This method of Montessori teaching has been introduced at DPS, Jaipur, Ajmer Road branch. The first step in Montessori education is the introduction of practical life activities. These activities bring children close to the environment and help to develop fine motor skills, eye-hand coordination, and concentration through order.
