The founder of the Montessori Method was Italian pedagogue, doctor and scientist Maria Montessori (1870 – 1952 years). She created and original system of nurturing and educating of the children that become popular and spreading throughout the whole world, and is still considered to be one of the best educational systems for preschool age children today.
The Montessori Method is different from other educational methods.
Built upon the rational balance between the freedom and well-defined structure created exclusively for small children, this method places the children in an exciting and stimulating environment where all activities are thoroughly developed to ideally suit their needs. Use of the Montessori Method provides qualified teachers control of your child’s work.
The Montessori system provides your child with a concrete foundation to create his/her own unique personality – a personality that is well developed, responsible, happy and educated.
The Montessori Method encourages knowledge through activity, providing an effortless learning environment.
Your child can choose the work that is attractive to him and well suits his interests. He can exercise his feelings freely and spontaneously, while feeling happy and passionate about his work, because he is doing something he wants, not something he was forced to do.
Through honing his skills the child gradually acquires the ability to be independent and build confidence. The Montessori Method fosters a child’s natural love for education and gradually establishes motivation towards future goals.
This assists the child in developing naturally and does not force him into something he is not ready for.
