Montessori education is an unique educational approach developed by Italian educator and physician Dr. Maria Montessori.

“The first essential for the child’s development is concentration. The child who concentrates is immensely happy.”
“The environment must be rich in motives which lend interest to activity and invite the child to conduct his own experiences.”
“No one can be free unless he is independent…“
“To aid life, leaving it free, however, that is the basic task of the educator. “
“Free the child’s potential, and you will transform him into the world.”
