About Montessori Education
The basic idea in the Montessori approach is characterized by an emphasis on independence, freedom within limits, and respect for a child’s natural psychological, physical, and social development.
Montessori education is an educational approach developed by Italian physician and educator Maria Montessori. Dr. Montessori recognized that the only valid impulse to learning is the selfmotivation of the child. Children move themselves toward learning. The teacher prepares the environment, directs the activity functions as the leader, offers the child stimulation, but it is the child who learns. Montessori introduced children to the joy of learning at an early age and provides a framework in which the intellectual and social discipline go hand in hand.
