Where did Montessori come from?
Montessori (pronounced MON-tuh-SORE-ee) education was founded in 1907 by Dr. Maria Montessori, the first woman in Italy to become a physician. She based her educational methods on scientific observation of children’s learning processes. Guided by her discovery that children teach themselves, Dr. Montessori designed a prepared environment in which children could freely choose from a number of developmentally appropriate activities. Now, more than a century after Maria Montessori’s first Casa Dei Bambini (Children’s House) in Rome, Montessori education is found all over the world, spanning from birth to adolescence.
