Montessori Philosophy

Montessori Philosopy

In 1896 Maria Montessori became the first female doctor in Italy.

Based on the direct observation of children, Dr. Montessori developed a new philosophy of education which supports the child's natural development, their innate love of learning and their drive for independence.

Kids exploringThe Montessori classroom is designed to allow the child to reach their potential through natural curiosity and exploration of 'hands on' materials. The environment fosters self-discipline, self-confidence, independence, logical and creative thinking and a respect for others and the natural world around them.

When choosing a Montessori school for your child, many parents are unaware that the name 'Montessori' cannot be registered. It is possible to set up a school in name only, without Montessori trained teachers, materials or the implementation of the philosophy. This is often where misconceptions about the Montessori classroom arise.
