About Montessori


This YouTube gives a parent’s perspective of Montessori, and the “big picture” difference of how children flourish in a true Montessori experience vs. the non-Montessori, traditional form of education.

What is Montessori?

Dr. Maria Montessori (1870 to 1952), the creator of what is called The Montessori Method of Education, was an Italian doctor, philosopher, and educator. She held the distinction of being Italys first woman physician. Rather than fight the laws of nature; Montessori suggests that we follow the child, allowing him to show us how best to foster the development of his human potential.
