ESSENTIALS OF PRACTICAL LIFE (EPL)
The practical life section is the most important area of study in Montessori education. Children are naturally drawn to this area because these materials are most familiar to them. This familiarity also serves to provide the children with a feel of security and well-being. The activities will contain objects and materials that are normally encountered in the everyday living experiences of the children’s culture. Many of them are fundamental activities that the children need to master to live comfortably in the real world. Most of the activities of practical life will fail into four categories, grace and courtesy, care of self, control of movement and care for the environment. Kidken has wide range of EPL activity materials which can enhance your school classroom environment.
