Dr. Montessori believed that a child’s full potential – physical, intellectual, and emotional – can be reached only if the child is given the opportunity to develop through the exploration of the environment. The Montessori Method of education is a unique approach to learning. Rather than “teaching” concepts, the environment is designed to stimulate the child's interests and learning capacities spontaneously.
