The late 1800s and early 1900s saw many scientists, researchers, psychologists* and even doctors studying the child’s mind for the first time with a scientific eye. They observed the child’s behavior in detail from birth and suddenly! discovered a whole new reality hidden behind those innocent eyes. All the pre-conceived notions held by mankind about the child until then, went out the window.
They found the child naturally curious and internally wired to learn! They learned that the children did not need a push! when they were given the right environment to cater to their needs. And that they have different sensitivities at different ages and are even naturally inclined to understand Mathematics!
It is all about WHEN and HOW it is given to them.
The Montessori method was one of the great achievements of this time founded by Dr. Maria Montessori, a doctor and scientist. Based on all these findings and a three decade long research of her own, comes an educational method which is child-centric and aids the child in learning naturally.
The Montessori method comes from THE CHILD.
