Montessori is both a philosophy and a method of educating children created by Maria Montessori, the
first female physician in Italy. It is based on the belief that children have a natural desire to learn and
that, when they are placed in an enriched environment with specially designed materials and highly
trained teachers, they learn quickly and easily through hands on experience.
Maria Montessori began work in the slums of Rome and through careful observation of the children in
her care she discovered how to help children learn about self-care, math, language, cultural studies and
size, shape, colors, etc. Montessori methodology has traveled throughout the world introducing these
systems to educators and parents everywhere.
