What is Montessori?

Dr. Maria Montessori was born in Italy in 1870 and died in Holland in 1952.  Upon her death, her son Mario became sucessor in the direction of the Association Montessori International, with headquarters in Amsterdam.

Dr. Maria Montessori believed that education begins at birth, and that the first few years of life are the most formative and important, both physically and mentally.

Too many adults fail to think of a young child as an intelligent human being, capable of learning. Montessori's "discovery of the child" was a true awakening in the advancement of early education.  She spoke of the child's mind as the "absorbent mind" because of its great ability to learn and assimilate effortlessly to the world around him.  She was quick to point out, however, that "the environment should reveal the child, not mold him"

Montessori materials are always well made, well maintained, and neatly arranged on the shelves.  Everything in the classroomhas a specific use, and there is nothing there that the child cannot see or touch, for this is how they learn.
