In Montessori education we place a high value on the process children go through to complete a task, versus the end result. Young children have a strong, ingrained desire to experiment, explore and repeat steps with little worry about the end product, unlike an adolescent child or an adult. Here is a wonderful example from one of our Toddler classrooms! 

With the first frost quickly on its way, we decided it was a good time to harvest the carrots that the children planted and cared for all summer long. 

The children spent a lot of time carefully scrubbing the dirt from each carrot.

Below is the result of a summers worth of care. The children loved it!
Process, not product.
