Dr. Maria Montessori, the creator of what is called "The Montessori Method of Education", based her method on the observations of young children's behaviors. In the Montessori School, she created a child-centered learning environment using unique hands on materials. She devoted her life to improving the education of children and started a quiet educational revolution that continues at Montessori Today Inc.
Dr. Montessori gave the world a scientific method, practical and tested, for bringing forth the very best in young human beings. She taught adults how to respect individual differences, and to emphasize social interaction and the education of the whole personality rather than the teaching of a specific body of knowledge. At Montessori Today, the Montessori philosophy is being used as originally intended, as a method of seeing children as they really are; while creating environments which foster the fulfillment of each child's highest potential; emotionally, physically, and intellectually, as members of a family, and the world.
