What is Montessori?
Montessori Education is both a philosophy of child development and a rationale for quality in that development. The special method, named after the Italian physician Maria Montessori, stresses the importance of the development of a healthy self-concept. 
 
Education, she believed, is a preparation for life, not merely a search for intellectual skills. Children have one intuitive aim - self-development. They desperately want to develop their inner resources and ability to cope with a strange, complex world. The child who accomplishes this moves into harmony with their world and becomes a full person.
 
Montessori is a method of education that is based on self-directed activity, hands-on learning and collaborative play. In Montessori classrooms children make creative choices in their learning, while the classroom and the teacher offer age-appropriate activities to guide the process. Children work in groups and individually to discover and explore the world and to reach their full potential.
 
Montessori classrooms are beautifully designed and crafted to meet the needs of children in a specific age range. Dr. Maria Montessori discovered that experiential learning in this type of classroom led to a deeper understanding of language, mathematics,science, music, social interactions and much more. Every material in a Montessori classroom supports an aspect of child's development, creating a match between the child’s natural interests and the available activities. Children can learn through their own experience at their own pace. They can respond at any moment to the natural curiosities that exist in all humans and build a solid foundation for lifelong learning.
