About Montessori Education
Montessori is an innovative, child-centered approach to education. It was developed a century ago by Maria Montessori, a woman who was far ahead of her time. Montessori uses mixed-age classrooms, student choice of activity, uninterrupted blocks of work time, and a discovery model of education where students learn concepts from working with specially designed materials instead of direct instruction. Teachers and assistants do more observing than correcting of children.
