Montessori education was founded in 1907 by Dr. Maria Montessori, the first woman in Italy to become a physician. She based her educational methods on scientific observation of children’s learning processes.
Guided by her discovery that children teach themselves, Dr. Montessori designed a “prepared environment” in which children could freely choose from a number of developmentally appropriate activities.
Now, nearly a century after Maria Montessori’s first Casa Dei Bambini (Children’s House) opened in Rome, Montessori education is found all over the world, spanning ages from birth through adolescence.
