Montessori History

The Montessori philosophy and teaching method was created by Dr Maria Montessori. Montessori has been a recognized teaching method for over a century. In 1907 Dr Montessori was asked to open a childcare centre for underprivileged children in Rome, which she called Casa dei Bambini, or “Children’s House”. While caring for and teaching the children she observed that children absorbed knowledge from their surroundings, essentially teaching themselves. Based on her experience with the children in her care, Dr Montessori created the Montessori teaching method. Unlike traditional teacher-centred education, the Montessori education is focused on inspiring children to drive their own learning.
