What Is The Montessori Method?

The Montessori Method was invented in Italy by Dr. Maria Montessori in the early 1900’s.

Although it was first applied to education, known as the “Montessori Education”, it has grown to become an approach to raising children inside the home as well.

In short, the Montessori Method provides children with a prepared environment where each element exists for a reason in order to help the development of the child.

The adult is an observer and a guide who allows the child to act, want and think on their own – helping to develop confidence, independence, and inner discipline.
