The Montessori Method of education was developed by Dr. Maria Montessori (1870 – 1952). Dr. Montessori, an Italian physician and educator dedicated her life to understanding the early development of the human psyche. Her primary focus of research was on how we develop our learning techniques and ways to improve them.
After her years of extensive research Dr. Montessori turned her attention towards education and developed the Montessori Method of learning. This method uses specially designed materials to help children learn critical thinking, social skills, and creativity in a fun and engaging way. The teachers are specially trained to incorporate these materials in a non-invasive way that gives the child a sense of freedom and self-accomplishment.
