Dr. Maria Montessori

August 31, 1807 – May 6, 1952

An Italian Physician, Educator and Scientist

Born in Italy, Dr. Maria Montessori was the first female Italian physician. She was known for her educational method, which builds on the way children naturally learn.

She spent many decades creating “The Montessori Method”, an integrated program tailored to meet the developmental needs of young children. The essential purpose of Montessori education is to offer each child a learning environment where he or she can learn and develop naturally.

The Montessori philosophy is based on Dr. Montessori’s extensive research and observation, recognizing children’s need to learn naturally, using their senses and self-directed learning at his or her own pace.

Dr. Montessori discovered that from birth to six years of age is when children create their foundation not only intellectually but also socially and emotionally.
