What is a Montessori School?

pic_what-isThe Montessori Method and philosophy of education was formulated in the early 1900’s by Dr. Maria Montessori, an Italian engineer, psychologist, physician, and anthropologist.  She discovered that the purpose of education was not the imparting of knowledge by the teacher but the development of intellectual skills so that the children could acquire the knowledge by their own effort; thus making the knowledge truly their own.

In this unique type of school, the children work within a structured environment, filled with motivations for learning where they are free to choose their work and to learn to make decisions, and where the development of a positive attitude in the child is the fundamental objective.  The Montessori school uses specially designed learning materials and the children may be observed working individually or in cooperation where they learn from each other.
