A Montessori Education

Maria Montessori

Dr. Maria Montessori was born in Italy in 1870 and was the first woman to graduate from the University of Rome's School of Medicine in 1896. She was always interested in children, their health, and the living conditions which affected health. With her keen observational powers and her ever curious mind, her clinical observations of children led her to analyze how they learn and how they relate to their immediate environment.

On January 6, 1907 Dr. Montessori opened her first Casa dei Bambini (Children's House) in Rome to a class of 60 children. She Dr. Maria Montessoriobserved these children's almost effortless ability to absorb knowledge from their surroundings, as well as their seemingly tireless interest in manipulating materials. She concluded that young children possess a natural and intense desire to learn and they teach themselves when provided with the appropriate materials. Montessori opened another school the following year and within a short time she was well known throughout most countries in Europe.

In her life, Montessori established numerous schools around theworld, as well as teacher training centres. Maria Montessori died in the Netherlands at the age of 81 and her methods live on in Montessori schools around the world.
