Open day on Maria Montessori's birthday
The Montessori method of education was developed by Maria Montessori over 100 years ago. Maria Montessori was an exceptional woman, well ahead of her time and a pioneer in women's rights and advocate for education for mentally disabled children. We have the basics of her history and work on our website but there is a lot more to read on websites such as the Association Montessori Internationale and Wikipedia.
Most Montessori schools and early childhood centres celebrate Maria Montessori's birthday on 31 August and this year will be the 149th anniversary. Although we are not quite open, we will be having a celebration at our centre on the Saturday. Come and see what the Montessori education looks like for children aged 2 to 6 years. Hear the amazing science behind the materials that the children use in their learning. And have fun!!
