The Montessori Method
The Montessori method of education which emphasizes the potential of the young child and which develops this potential by utilizing special teaching materials. Montessori materials help the child to understand what he/she learns by associating abstract concepts with concrete sensorial experiences.
Dr. Maria Montessori (1870 – 1952), an Italian physician and educator, was the founder of the educational philosophy which still bears her name today. She based her philosophy on the premise that education involves the unfolding of the abilities which a child possesses at birth. She emphasized that a child learns best if given freedom to discover, explore and create in an enriched environment under the guidance and encouragement of a trained directress (teacher).
