"And so we discovered that education is not something which the teacher does, but that it is a natural process which develops spontaneously in the human being."

Maria Montessori!


Maria Montessori was born in Italy on August 31, 1870 and was the first woman in Italy to receive a medical degree. A world-renowned physician, educator, philosopher, humanitarian, and pioneer; she is best remembered as the founder of the Montessori Method of education which encourages all children to develop their own skills at a pace they set. She believed that education should not only impart knowledge but also seek to unlock human potential. Her philosophy has been used successfully across cultures and economic classes throughout the world.
