What Is Montessori ?

The Montessori Method of education, developed by Dr. Maria Montessori, is a child-centered educational approach based on scientific observations of children from birth to adulthood. The Montessori Method has been tested over time with over 100 years of success in diverse cultures throughout the world. The approach values the human spirit and the development of the whole child—physical, social, emotional and cognitive.
 
A Montessori program includes multiage groups that foster peer learning, uninterrupted blocks of learning time and guided choice of work activities. In addition, a full complement of specially designed Montessori learning materials is meticulously arranged and available for use.​

The Montessori Method of education includes a learning triangle of teacher, child, and environment. The classroom encourages independence, freedom within limits, and a sense of order. The child, through individual choice, makes use of what the environment offers to develop himself, interacting with the teacher when support and/or guidance is needed.

"The greatest gifts we can give our children are the roots of responsibility and the wings of independence."
Maria Montessori

In 2019, I opened a Montessori environment at my house to take care of my first dandelion, Totini. This is how The Dandelions Montessori Non-Profit began. Our organization has for mission serving parents and educators interested in learning the principles of the Positive Discipline and Montessori philosophies.  

 

If you believe that education for your child should be hands-on, encourage independence and a love of learning,

Montessori is for you!
