Montessori Cottage

  • Montessori is a method of teaching developed by Dr. Maria Montessori in the early 1900s.
  • Dr. Montessori, a physician turned educator, used her scientific and biological background while observing children with special needs.
  • She in turn developed a method of teaching, which encompassed the whole child. Her philosophy is that each child innately knows what Montessori is a method of teaching developed by Dr. Maria Montessori in the early 1900s.
  • Dr. Montessori, a physician turned educator, used her scientific and biological background while observing children with special needs.
  • She in turn developed a method of teaching, which encompassed the whole child.
  • Her philosophy is that each child innately knows what they are ready to learn and if given the appropriate environment the child would be drawn to activities for which s/he is ready.
  • Because no two children are exactly alike, a Montessori environment allows for each child to learn at his or her own pace.
  • The Montessori classroom is created to meet the childs developmental needs.  Montessori classes are multi-age within three years.
