"The most important period of life is not the age of university studies, but the period from birth to the age of six, for that is the time when intelligence itself is being formed."
-Maria Montessori, 1889
The Montessori Philosophy was developed by Dr. Maria Montessori, Italy's
first woman physician. Through observation in her own work with
children, Dr. Montessori discovered the processes critical in the young
child's learning: order, language, refinement of movement, and
attention to detail.
