Dr. Maria Montessori was an Italian physician and pioneer in child development who observed that children have a natural, progressive aptitude for acquiring knowledge about their world. Building on this natural progression, Dr. Montessori developed a philosophy which embraces the whole child. She found that placing children in a specially prepared environment to meet their physical, cognitive and social needs and to satisfy their intrinsic interests, children not only learn but thrive.
"Our goal is not so much the imparting of knowledge as the unveiling and developing of the whole child." — Maria Montessori
