What is Montessori?

What is Montessori

Founded by female physicist Dr Maria Montessori in 1907,

“Montessori education is a brain-based developmental method that allows children to make creative choices in discovering people, places, and knowledge of the world. It is hands-on learning, self- expression and collaborative play in a beautifully crafted environment of respect, peace, and joy.”

Dr Steven Hughes, Paediatric Neuropsychologist

How is it that an education system founded over 100 years ago gaining popularity today? It is because it’s been tried, tested, and succeeded.

Unfortunately, it’s been believed for some time that our children are empty vessels until we feed them knowledge. This is far from the truth. From birth, our children are unconsciously learning. They have a great ability to absorb and be brilliant.

“Psychologists say that if we compare our ability as adults to that of the child it would require us 60 years of hard work to achieve what a child in these first three years”
