“The objects in our system are instead a help to the child himself, he chooses what he wants for his own use, and works with it according to his own needs, tendencies and special interests.  In this way, the objects become a means of growth.”

Born in Italy in 1870, Maria Montessori became the first woman doctor in her country's history.  Dr. Montessori devised a system of education that helped handicapped and deprived children learn, by close observation and experimentation, as well as normal and average children. Her methods became world-known and many countries adopted them.

Dr. Maria Montessori believed that children of the present are the world's hope for the future. It was her belief that in the early years children develop a strong social, emotional, physical and intellectual foundation. The development of concentration, independence, self-discipline and a sense of order and responsibility are prerequisites for success in learning as well as in becoming a citizen of the world. The Montessori approach is education for life.

Today there is a renewed interest in her system in the United States. Her insights into children and her ideas for helping them grow into healthy, well-rounded adults seem fresh and meaningful today. The failures of traditional methods of education are becoming more and more obvious. The Montessori way offers a sensible, structured system that allows a child to develop at her own pace, using her own abilities, with the guidance of a trained Montessori teacher and the use of specially designed Montessori materials.
