"Do You Teach Them Anything?" What Really Happens in a Montessori Toddler Class [link]Paper  abstract   bibtex   
The greatest sign of success for a teacher is to be able to say, "The children are now working as if I did not exist" (Montessori, 1967, p. 283). Montessori Toddler teachers spend a great amount of time preparing and perfecting their environments to allow and to encourage learning to happen. The teachers are constantly adjusting and changing their environments to meet the changing develop mental needs of the children. So the Montessori Toddler teacher's job is not so much to teach toddlers–at least not in the traditional sense of filling them with information–but to allow them the opportunities and the freedom to learn and, indeed, to teach themselves in the classroom.
