About Maria Montessori

Maria Montessori is the developer of the Montessori Method and in many ways ahead of her time. She was born in Italy in 1870 and became the first female physician there. While Practicing medicine, her clinical observations of children lef her to analyze children and how they learned from their environment.

Shifting her focus from the body to the mind, she returned to the university and studied psychology and philosophy. In 1906 she gave up her medical practice to work with sixty young children in Rome.

What ultimately became the Montessori Method of Education was developed there at "The Children's House" based upon scientific observations of these children's almost effortless ability to absorb knowledge from their surroundings, as well as there tireless interest in manipulating materials. Every piece of equipment and every exercise was based on what she observed children do "naturally", by themselves unassisted by adults.
