In the early 1900’s, Dr. Maria Montessori, Italy’s first female physician, developed educational materials and methods based on her belief that children learn best by doing. Dr. Montessori believed learning should occur in multi-age classrooms where children at various stages of development learn from and with each other. Her advice was always, “Follow the Child.”
Instruction is based on the child’s inherent love of learning and is encouraged by giving them the opportunities to engage in spontaneous, meaningful work. Annie Fisher Montessori celebrates the fact that every child learns differently. Differentiation is built into the Montessori pedagogy and every student has his or her own individual learning plan. Students work collaboratively in small groups throughout the day on interdisciplinary projects. The goal of a Montessori education is to graduate students with a vision of what the world can be, and the resources to lead and accomplish that mission.
