The Montessori Method of Education was developed by Dr. Maria Montessori (1870-1952), who, as a teacher herself, believed that “A child’s work is to create the person she will become.”, and to give them a certain degree of freedom to allow them to grow and learn at their own pace. Therefore, The Montessori Method of Education provides a “Prepared Environment” that allows children to work within a structured atmosphere while still retaining an element of independence. Dr. Maria Montessori’s Method of Education is currently a widely accepted method of learning, and is implemented in many preschool to elementary programs in both public and private schools.
The Montessori Method of Teaching consists of six essential areas of study:
- Practical Life
Every essential element of Montessori’s Method is presented in a variety of different materials that encourage “active learning”, or learning with actual experiences. Children are free to decide which materials they wish to use, therefore allowing them to learn at their own pace. A regular Montessori classroom is supervised by professionally trained teachers to assist a child’s independent learning process and to assess their skills.
