Montessori Method of Learning
Maria Montessori was an Italian physician and educator. She gave to the world the Montessori Education Method or Montessori Philosophy that is an acclaimed child-based learning method. It is a method of scrutinizing and promoting the innate development in children that has been tested worldwide for over a 100 years now. At present this system is being used in over 20,000 schools worldwide.
This educational practice helps develop creativity, problem-solving, critical thinking, time-management, care for the environment, and benevolence in children. It readies them to contribute to society and to become a complete person. The Montessori practice in classrooms is based on a mixed age group (3-6 yrs. in one class), individual choice of research and work, and uninterrupted concentration.
