This time we are dedicating this release to Maria Montessori. She was born on the 31st August 1870 in the town of Chiaravalle, Italy. Her father, Alessandro, was an accountant in the civil service, and her mother, Renilde Stoppani, was well educated and had a passion for reading.
Maria Montessori was an Italian physician, educator, and innovator, acclaimed for her educational method that is known as the Montessori Method of education. This method is a child-centred educational approach based on scientific observations of children from birth to adulthood. The Montessori method views the child as one who is naturally eager for knowledge and capable of initiating learning in a supportive, thoughtfully prepared learning environment. It attempts to develop children physically, socially, emotionally and cognitively.
She opened the first Montessori school—the Casa dei Bambini, or Children’s House—in Rome on January 6, 1907. Subsequently, she travelled the world and wrote extensively about her approach to education, attracting many devotees. There are now more than 22,000 Montessori schools in at least 110 countries worldwide. Her educational method is in use today in many public and private schools throughout the world.
