The Montessori Method is an approach to education, which guides children through the “voyage of discovery.” A vast array of specially designed educational equipment is introduced to the child by Montessori trained teachers (facilitators) in an atmosphere that promotes personal responsibility, freedom of choice, problem-solving skills, self-esteem, love and respect. After becoming Italy’s first woman physician in 1896, Dr. Montessori focused her attention on the emotional and intellectual needs of the young child. Her unique human insights, discovered through countless hours of observation, led to the application of principles and the development of theories known as the Montessori Method.
