MARIA MONTESSORI: • • • Graduated as the first female medical doctor in Italy. Studied anthropology and psychology extensively. Derived the basic principles of the Montessori Method through careful, scientific observation of children. • Began the first Montessori school called La Casa dei Bambini in Rome in 1907. • Intuited what modern educational/scientific research has proven. Many of her most important educational principles have been endorsed by contemporary educational researchers/theoreticians. • There are approximately 4,500 Montessori schools in the United States and about 20,000 worldwide. (NAMTA, 2014)

The Montessori educational method combines Montessori’s wisdom about children and their learning, with a 21st century view of what children need to enjoy learning and live joyfully.

Montessori classrooms emphasize the importance of: Order Concentration Coordination Independence

The Montessori Method values: Hands-on learning. Why? Because “hands-on” means “brains on” learning. "[The child learns] with his hands, by experience— first in play and then through work. The hands are the instruments of the child’s intelligence." Dr. Maria Montessori, The Absorbent Mind
