School Notes

  • ABOUT THE MONTESSORI METHOD A little over a hundred years ago, Maria Montessori, Italy`s first female physician, developed her philosophy of education based on observing stages of child development. She pioneered a new method of education by inventing a series of "self-correcting" materials.They might look like toys, but we call them works because each of these beautifully crafted materials has a specific purpose. These are like puzzles with only one solution that children discover for themselves by hands-on experimentation that`s as natural to them as playing. The role of the Montessori teacher is to guide the student in their exploration.
