The Montessori Method
Education as an “Aid to Life”
A well-known Montessori trainer explained the Montessori Environment “as a place physically and psychically prepared to respond to all needs of the child so he can develop in harmony.”
After many years of careful observation, Dr. Maria Montessori was convinced that every child had his own innate means of developing his personality and acquiring knowledge. Based on her observations, she developed a method of education that required proper training of teachers and the meticulously prepared environment
This amazing method, Maria Montessori’s “education for life,” has been jealously guarded and handed down through the decades by means of the AMI training centers established all over the world.
