The following paper focus on the growing interest in structuring the learning environment in order to promote the psycho-social-attitudinal development of the infant. The Montessorian approach enhances a child-friendly environment: it facilitates active participation in the child’s daily life, thus contributing towards a higher level of independence, self- awareness, self-esteem and self-evaluation. The survey conducted in June 2019 shows that in Sicily nowadays less people are adopting Montessorian approach into the early childhood structures.
