Dr. Maria Montessori, an Italian medical doctor and educator, developed a method of education with a philosophy based on the natural development of the senses in children. She was able to combine her medical background and educational knowledge to establish what we now refer to as “The Four Planes of Education”.
Dr. Montessori saw education as an aid to life. Through carefully planned initial exercises, the child experiences success in his/her efforts, and thus acquires a sense of security and confidence as an independent learner. The chief objective of the Montessori philosophy is to introduce children to the joy of learning at an early age, and to provide a framework in which intellectual and social discipline can go hand-in-hand in the child’s development.
