‘Seeking the release of human potentialities,’ Dr. Maria Montessori
The Montessori Method has been in use throughout the world for over 100 years. This child-centered approach to education is based on Dr. Montessori’s observations of child development. Maria Montessori, born in Italy in 1870, was a remarkable woman who through her study of children recognized their incredible ability to learn and teach themselves.
The Montessori Method is an educational approach based on the understanding that children learn effortlessly when given the freedom of discovering and exploring interests of their own choice, at their own pace. They are recognized as instinctively interested in learning and gaining knowledge when supported in a purposefully created learning environment. The cognitive, physical, social and emotional development of the child is viewed as a whole. With an aim to provide children from an early age with intellectual, ethical, and social independence, Montessori education is most often described as an ‘education for life.
