Historical Who is Who

MONTESSORI, Maria

1870 - 1952
Italy
CURRICULUM, PHILOSOPHY

 

Maria Montessori studied medicine at university before setting up a hospital for mentally handicapped children and then devising – with influence from Froebel -  a sensory based and individually interactive method of teaching and learning for young children generally. The early development of self-discipline and independence would contribute directly to their moral education.  Schools have subsequently been established in her name committed to the principle of a free curriculum in many different countries.
