About the Montessori Method

about maria montessori method school alpineThe Montessori Method was developed by Dr. Maria Montessori, of Italy, in the early 1900’s.

Montessori’s approach was dedicated to making life engaging for children by preparing a classroom environment that satisfies each student’s ability to concentrate and gain experience in independent work. These skills help the child develop physical, social, and intellectual skills as a catalyst for continued education.

Montessori education is not the force-feeding of information and skills designed to produce a precocious child. The environment is neither rigidly structured and disciplined, nor disorganized and undisciplined. It is a non-competitive place  where each child is allowed to focus on her/his own work. Many levels of ability can be accommodated in the classroom, allowing for a match of activities and materials consistent with each child’s needs.
