Maria Montessori

Dr. Maria Montessori believed that children have a lot of potential and are born with some knowledge that needs to be discovered. During her time of being a Doctor, she studied how exactly children learn and what impact the environment has on a child. She believed that the environment impacts the child’s development and intelligence. According to Dr. Maria Montessori, children are their own unique individual and do not think like adults, but will eventually learn to. She also believes that children mature at his or her own pace and there is no need to force development, just assist it.  A child’s development happens in stages, from one, preparing to the next.

Montessori method

The Montessori Method is based on the idea that the child should develop and learn at his or her own pace, this is also called “spontaneous development.” This method applies from infancy through to adolescence. It is mainly comprised of self-directed activity, with the teachers, also known as, the directress, who observes each child in order to let the child develop at his her own rate and to provide assistance when required, as well as, to introduce the material and special auto-didactic equipment to each child. This method involves a structured environment where the child can choose the activity that is most appealing to them.


"Education cannot be effective unless it helps a child to open up himself to life"
