Your Child is in Great Hands
Dr. Maria Montessori was an Italian physician and educator who developed the educational method that bears her name. She studied pediatrics and psychiatry and became an expert in pediatric medicine.
She opened the Casa dei Bambini, or Children's House, in 1907, interested in applying more widely an educational method she developed and called "scientific pedagogy". Dr. Montessori observed behaviors in these young children which formed the foundation of her educational method.
She believed that by working independently, children could reach new levels of autonomy and become self-motivated to reach new levels of understanding. She also came to believe that acknowledging all children as individuals and treating them as such would yield better learning and fulfilled potential.
Maria Montessori was an Italian physician, educator, and innovator, acclaimed for her educational method that builds on the way children learn naturally.
