The Montessori Method

What is Montessori?

Montessori education is a method and philosophy based on the observation and work with children by Dr Maria Montessori (1870–1952), Italian doctor, professor and educator .

Montessori is an education for life and lays down important foundations in the critical development period of 3-6 years. Montessori is a learning journey not just for the child, but for educators and parents as well. Montessori education may be the most important choice you make for your child. We hope to help make this an informed decision by providing you with information and resources for your learning journey.
