What is a Montessori School/Daycare?
In 1896, Dr. Maria Montessori became the first female physician in Italy. With great interest in the healthy development of the child; she shifted her focus from her medical practice to her desire to understand children and how they learn.
Shortly after the turn of the century, she founded Casa dei Bambini, or “Children’s House”. It was here that the Montessori Method was developed based upon Dr. Montessori’s clinical observations of children and the ease at which they learn by absorbing knowledge “like a sponge”, and manipulating materials in their environment.
Montessori found that children have a profound ability and desire to teach themselves and dedicated her life-long work to the pursuit of educational reform and teacher training.
