What Montessori Said

Establishing lasting peace is the work of education; all politics can do is keep us out of war.

We do not say that we want to prepare a school for the children, we wish to prepare an environment for life, where the child can develop a life.

Maria Montessori
We teachers can only help the work going on, as servants wait upon a master. We then become witnesses to the development of the human soul; the emergence of the New Man who will no longer be the victim of events but, thanks to his clarity of vision, will become…

Maria Montessori
Supposing I said there was a planet without schools or teachers, study was unknown, and yet the inhabitants - doing nothing but living and walking about - came to know all things, to carry in their minds the whole of learning: would you not think I was romancing? Well, just…

Why Bournemouth Montessori

 

Maria Montessori

Dr Maria Montessori (1870-1952) was the first female Italian doctor. Her philosophy and method of education was developed over many years based on detailed observations of children of all abilities and backgrounds, and was born out of love and respect for each unique child.

Dr Maria Montessori designed activities that the child uses to support all areas of their mental, physical and spiritual development. The child chooses these activities spontaneously and independently having been shown how to use them by the Montessori teacher (Directress). 

The method was created in the poorest area of Rome and is now used with children of all abilities internationally.

The child is given a balance between freedom and structure to use the activities without unnecessary interference so he develops to his full potential and at his own pace.

"What I have done is merely to study the child, to take and express what he has given me, and that is called The Montessori Method."

No one can fully appreciate the Montessori Method by studying its principles in the abstract. Dr Maria Montessori would not grant a qualification to a student without practical experience of working with children.

The method she developed is as relevant and exciting today in the 21st Century.
