What is Montessori ?

The Montessori movement takes its name from its founder, Dr Maria Montessori who began the first 'casa dei bambini' or children's home in Rome in 1907.

Today Montessori is the single largest educational philosophy in the world with 22,000 Montessori schools in more than 100 countries on six continents.

Reaching 107 years of Montessori reveals that this approach to children is relevant for today's future generations.
