Maria Montessori

Dr. Maria Montessori


Maria Montessori was born in 1870 and was one of the first women to qualify as a medical doctor in Italy. Through her observation and work with special needs and poor children, she went on to pioneer an approach in education that focuses on children’s innate desire to learn and their enormous capacity to do so when provided with the right environment and the appropriate materials under the guidance of a watchful, caring teacher. It was through her observations and her scientific background that she designed the Montessori materials – many of which show remarkable insight into children’s learning patterns. Her success in her work with supposedly unteachable children and the poor children in Rome, has left a powerful legacy that has touched the lives of countless children and adults around the world.
