Dr. Maria Montessori (1870 – 1952), the proponent of the Method was the first female medical doctor from Italy. She devoted her life to developing a system for educating young children.  She was the genius behind one of the universally accepted best methods for educating young children. Fundamental to her approach is the belief that a child’s early years- from birth to six are the period when the greatest capacity to learn is examined.

You are cordially welcome as you register with us for your Montessori teacher training.
