What is Montessori?

Montessori is an educational approach developed by Italian physician and educator maria Montessori. In 1907 Maria Montessori opened her first classroom the Casa dei Bambini or Children’s House in Rome. From the beginning montessori based her work on her observations of children and experimentation with the environment materials and lessons available to them. Montessori education is practiced in an estimated 22 schools worldwide serving children from birth to eighteen year olds. Montessori is about learning to balance responsibility with freedom of choice. It offers children the opportunity to realise their potential in a non-competitive environment and seeks to promote: - self-confidence and self-esteem- a sense of achievement and self worth- a sense of responsibility for themselves and their actions- independence and adaptability- cooperation with others and a sense of community- respect for the rights and needs of others- initiative and self-motivation- concentration and persistence in completing a taskThe Montessori approach provides the foundations for 'Learning for Life'.
