About Montessori

Maria Montessori was a physician and teacher who worked with children in Italy early in the 20th century. She shared her insights with educators around the world to help bring joy in learning to all children. She observed children carefully and chose materials and designed lessons to appeal to the children's interest and natural need to move and make choices.

"Our care of the child should be governed, not by the desire to make her learn things, but by the endeavor to always keep burning within her that light which is called intelligence."
