"Children are human beings to whom respect is due, superior to us by reason of their innocence and the greater possibilities of their future." -- Dr. Maria Montessori
Montessori is a pedagogy followed all over the world in the education of children. Developed in the early 20th century by Maria Montessori, this approach is used in thousands of schools and has become a way of life for many working with young children. A three time Nobel Peace Prize nominee, Dr. Montessori believed all children have inherent abilities and a natural desire to learn that lasts a life time when nurtured and inspired. She argued that children were far more capable then most adults believed and that the true future of mankind started with the successful education of children.
