Dr. Maria Montessori (1870-1952)


Dr. Maria Montessori was one of the century’s most influential pioneers in early childhoold education.  Her ideas have become recognised throughout the world and have significantly developed mainstream education.  She was the first woman ever to graduate from Rome University Medical School and became interested in education rather than medicine through treating children with special needs.  She observed them closely and discovered ways to help them achieve their full potential.


The result was a method of education which combined a philosophy with a practical approach - if a child had freedom to move around in a carefully planned environment, he or she could absorb knowledge effortlessly.


Her commitment to multi-cultural development and world peace is the cornerstone of Montessori education.
