Why choose a Montessori School.
Based on the best-selling book on Montessori education, this video
is as an accessible introduction to Montessori's ideas. This animation
traces the journey of one family as they wrestled with questions
of how best to educate their children. It explores why they eventually
chose a Montessori school and what they have since discovered.
Dr. Maria Montessori (1870-1952)
Maria Montessori was a radical in a time when women were not expected
to be radical. Her belief that we should educate children by 'following
the child' revolutionized primary education and spawned a worldwide
movement based on her enlightened teachings.
