WHO WAS MARIA MONTESSORI?
Maria Montessori was a visionary who disabused the traditional methods of education for being too constrictive and non child friendly. In her lifelong work with children first as a pediatric doctor and then as researcher and educator Maria Montessori stumbled up on the secret to not just retaining children’s attention but to successfully divert it for productive work.
Maria Montessori believed that education is an aid for life. Her education philosophy can be summed up in her own words- Never help a child with a task at which he feels he can succeed. She believed the happiness you see in a child is directly proportional to the education he received. She spread her schooling philosophy far and wide to ensure that the first six years of every child lay the best possible foundations for an enriching future.
