Montessori

Montessori is a comprehensive educational approach from birth to adulthood based on Dr. Maria Montessori's observations of children's needs and her understanding of children's natural tendencies as they unfold in a "prepared environment."

The Montessori "prepared environment" contains specially designed materials for development. Under the guidance of a trained teacher, children in a Montessori classroom learn by making discoveries with these materials, cultivating concentration, motivation, self-discovery and a love of learning.

Association Montessori Internationale (AMI) was founded by Maria Montessori in 1929. The association maintains Montessori education principles.
