Learning and Doing: The Whole Child Development Method
Over 100 years ago, Dr. Maria Montessori developed a method of educating children that focused on the whole child approach to learning. She determined that children are hardwired to learn, and that the environment around them can facilitate that learning. In Montessori Education, the classroom layout, the materials used, and the emphasis on self-directed learning all contribute to addressing the child’s needs, while providing an environment where learning takes place at that child’s speed and natural developmental level. Education the Montessori way is about the whole child and makes learning a source of joy
