Maria Montessori was born on the 31st August 1870 in the town of Chiaravalle, Italy. She was an Italian physician and educator best known for the philosophy of education that bears her name, and her writing on scientific pedagogy.
One of Montessori's many accomplishments was the Montessori method. This is a method of education for young children that stresses the development of a child's own initiative and natural abilities, especially through practical play. This method allowed children to develop at their own pace and provided educators with a new understanding of child development.
The following quotes will show you why her theories on early education still shape the way kids learn today around the globe.
