Maria Montessori

Maria Montessori

Montessori Education is based on the principles developed by Maria Montessori.

In 1907, she opened her first school for children of low-income workers in an apartment building in Rome. The school was called "Casa Dei Bambini",  Home for Children.

The school had a teacher's table, a stove, a blackboard, chairs, group tables and a cabinet filled with materials that Maria developed in her earlier career.

Learning complex concepts

Marie Montessori created materials when she noticed that students seemed to understand complex concepts better when they engaged all their senses.

School activities included personal care, such as dressing and undressing, care of the environment like sweeping, dusting and gardening. The children could otherwise play with the materials provided.

Observations by Maria Montessori

Observations by Maria Montessori

  • Children had episodes of deep concentration and several repetitions of the same activity.
  • Given a choice, children showed more interest in practical activities and materials than toys, sweets or other rewards.
  • Self-disciple emerged spontaneously.

Montessori concluded that by working independently, children could become self-motivated learners. She started to see the role of the teacher as a facilitator in a prepared environment. 

The goal is to grow children to become independent and responsible adults.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
