The term Montessori embodies both a philosophy and a method of education. It is based on the philosophy of Dr. Maria Montessori, a noted Italian educator and physician (1870 – 1952), who revolutionized early education by advocating that children be allowed the freedom to explore and develop his or their own creative potential through a wealth of self-teaching educational materials.

Montessori operates on the principle of freedom within limits. Every programme has its set of ground rules which differs from age to age, but is always based on core Montessori beliefs: respect for each other and for the environment.
Montessori programmes focus on the development of each child’s full potential using teachers specially trained in the Montessori method and philosophy, using both concrete teaching materials and a well-defined innovative curriculum tailored to a three-year cycle.
