A Montessori Education

The Montessori method of education was founded in 1907 by Dr. Maria Montessori, who worked with young children in the slums of Rome and used scientific observations to determine the various ways in which children learn. Guided by her discovery that children learn best when allowed to teach themselves, she designed sets of self-correcting materials and engendered the concept of the “prepared environment” within which a child could choose to work with whatever materials interested him or her. Now, more than a century after Dr. Montessori opened her first “Children’s House” in Rome, Montessori schools all over the world still practice this method of education.
