Montessori Method

The Montessori Method of education was developed as a curriculum in 1907 by Dr. Maria Montessori, an Italian physician and scientist. It is a child-centered education approach that is based on the scientific observation of children from birth to adulthood.

Our aim is not merely to make the child understand, and still less to force him to memorize, but so to touch his imagination as to enthuse him to his inmost core.
