Montessori Method

  • Montessori Method

    The Montessori method has existed since 1907, when Maria Montessori opened the first “Children’s House” in Rome, Italy. Maria Montessori’s work was not only the development of a new way of teaching, but also a discovery into life and how to help a child reach his/her potential as a human being. She taught a new attitude and a new way of looking at children. Therefore, the Montessori method of education is much more than the use of specialized materials. It is the ability of the educator to love and respect the child as a person, and to be sensitive to his/her needs. To achieve this, the educator must spend time observing the child, getting to know him/her well.
