Dr. Maria Montessori

The Montessori method of education is named after its founder Dr. Maria Montessori (1870-1952), a pioneer in the area of child development and education. By working with and carefully observing young children, she brought about a new form of education and transformed the way we think about children.

Through these observations of children, Montessori discovered not only how effortlessly children taught themselves, but also that learning is stimulated by an inner need and carries for each child its own motivations and rewards.  These observations helped her to design the first “Casa dei Bambini” or “Children's House” in Rome, in 1907. 

The Montessori Method is designed to fit the child, instead of making the child fit the programme. She respected the children as individuals and gave them freedom within an environment specifically designed to meet their needs. This “prepared environment” allowed children to move about freely and choose from the many activities that would facilitate their development and their absorption of knowledge and culture.

Dr Montessori also used her observations of the common elements of child development to design and make a comprehensive range of equipment to assist the children develop across all areas.

Maria Montessori was nominated three times for the Nobel Prize.  She died in Holland, aged 82, having seen her theories acclaimed throughout the world.
