Montessori Education

The Montessori Method is dynamic in that observation and meeting of needs is continual and specific for each child.   Dr. Montessori came to the conclusion that education must be an aid to life, a collaboration with nature.  Her message is still to “Follow the Child”.  There are many books written about her amazing discoveries and Montessori teacher training centers and schools exist on all continents today.   Her philosophy is not to be restricted to schools, but is valid wherever in the world there are children.
