Providing a constantly changing environment to stimulate and engage

Montessori is a method of education named after Dr. Maria Montessori.

Maria Montessori was the first woman in Italy to obtain the degree of Doctor of Medicine. Because she was educated as a doctor, Maria Montessori looked at education with a scientific perspective.

Montessori believed that education should prepare a child for all aspects of life. She designed materials and techniques that would promote a natural growth of learning in students. These materials and techniques are common to all Montessori classrooms.

Working with these materials and techniques forms a pattern that children carry over naturally to reading, writing, and mathematics. Each skill is developed to interlock with another.

“The greatest sign of success for a teacher is to be able to say, ‘The children are now working as if I did not exist.'” Dr. Maria Montessori
