Montessori is a method of teaching developed
by Dr. Maria Montessori in the early 1900s.
Dr. Montessori a physician turned educator
used her scientific and biological background
while observing children with special needs.
She in turn developed a method of teaching which encompassed the
whole child. Her philosophy is that each child innately knows what
they are ready to learn and if given the appropriate environment the
child would be drawn to activities for which s/he is ready. Because no
two children are exactly alike a Montessori environment allows for
each child to learn at his or her own pace. The Montessori classroom
is created to meet the childs developmental needs. Montessori classes
are multi-age within three years.
