Encourage self-confidence and independence, while allowing children to develop at their own pace and in complete freedom.

Maria Montessori

Maria Montessori was Italy's first female doctor and
a champion of children's rights. "Educating is not training," she advocated.
In January 1907, she opened the first Casa dei Bambini (Children's House) in Rome.

What made Montessori so revolutionary? She provided children with appropriate learning materials, but most of all, she advocated giving them the freedom to choose the activities they want to do, for as long as they want to do them.
Montessori was surprised to find that young children were capable of remarkable levels of concentration and self-discipline.

From this observation she developed the Montessori Method: if children are in an appropriate and prepared environment, guided by a teacher who adapts to and stimulates them, they learn by themselves, at their own pace.

The foundations of Montessori education

Principles of Montessori education

Mixed-aged classrooms
(3 to 6-year-olds in the primary community) encourage children to help and learn from each other.

The environment should be structured, clean and tidy.
The furniture is adapted to the child's size.

Learning materials are always accessible so children may choose them freely, and use them in a self-directed manner. 

The material must be respected and handled with care.
It is simple, beautiful and precise.

Adults act as guides, observing the children and leaving them free to experiment, while remaining available.

Children have the freedom to manipulate objects in order to develop organization and coordination of movement and thought.
