Hello and welcome to Montessori online. The purpose of this website is to educate families all over the world about the Montessori Method of education. Our goal is to provide valuable content and tools to help families create Montessori areas that help children develop individual and independent learning.
The first Montessori school was opened in 1907 in Rome, Italy by psychiatrist Maria Montessori. She believed that children learn best when provided with an environment that supports their desire of knowledge and skills. With scientific observations, Maria noticed deeper concentration, attention and repetition of activities in those children who were given a free choice of activity. Overtime, she noticed self- discipline in children emerge as well as more interest in Montessori tools than in toys.
Montessori material cover activities designed to cover the needs of children.
These include: Practical life skills, mathematics, science, language and sensory activities.
There are many activities that can be done at home using the Montessori method and materials to create an area where children can develop life skills as well as assist with sensory development.
This method has been used all around the world for more than 100 years. It includes many activities with hands-on learning and collaborative play.
As previously mentioned, the idea of the website is to educate families and friends on how to implement the Montessori method in their homes or play areas. There are many fun and educational materials that can be used with the purpose of helping young bright minds.
