Montessori Education

It is not true that I invented what is called the Montessori method. I have studied the child, I have taken what the child has given me and expressed it and that is what is called the Montessori method. Maria Montessori

Dr. Montessori believed that education is a self-constructing process: we each must do it ourselves. Educated individuals, because they are internally motivated by a curiosity and a love of knowledge, continue learning long after they leave the classroom.

Montessori students are grouped in classrooms with a three-year age span, to maximize both individual and social development. The more experienced children share what they have learned with the younger children, who in turn are inspired to emulate their older peers. Each child is nurtured and respected as an important member of their harmonious classroom community.

The Montessori method helps children to find their own place, time and group. It is truly an education for the development of the whole human being, body, mind, and spirit.

Dr. Maria Montessori was born in Italy in 1870. She was a physician and educator who devoted her life to children and was honored and respected throughout the world at the time of her death in 1952. She was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize in 1949, 1950, and 1951.
