About the Montessori Method
The Montessori method is a unique approach to education that is child centered. Dr. Maria Montessori an Italian Doctor born in 1870 developed this unique method, which focuses on the different stages of children’s development.
She made unique materials, which are still used in today’s classroom, which help a child participate in self-directed and self corrected learning.
Practitioners of Montessori method are trained to observe and provide guidance to children based on an individual child’s developmental needs.
Montessori focuses on creating an individual learning path for each child recognizing that each child is unique and different. Montessori education encourages independent, confident children who have a wider knowledge and understanding of the world around them.
