The Montessori School is a nonprofit education corporation dedicated to assisting families with the intellectual, social, emotional, and physical development of their children in accordance with the principles and philosophy of Dr. Maria Montessori.
Dr. Maria Montessori was the first female physician in Italy in 1896.
Her medical practice and clinical observations led her to analyze how children learn and how they "construct themselves" from what they find in their immediate environment.
The materials she developed are based on what she observed children doing "naturally".
