About Montessori
Montessori Education is a child-focused approach that Dr. Maria Montessori developed as an educational program that follows the natural lead of the child, Just as the child taught itself to speak, the child teaches itself along the way as the child develops. Educare dei Montessori is not a pure Montessori program. It's an education program using the theory of Montessori as expressed above, the teacher is a resource for the child's own natural development. Educare dei (of) refers to this method used by Educare Staff to emulate the theory of Montessori in relating to each child. 

Basically, children are respected as individuals and encouraged to be independent, follow their own interests and learn in a prepared environment that meets their needs; emotionally, intellectually, spiritually, socially and physically. 

Maria Montessori was an Italian physician, educator, and innovator, acclaimed for her educational method that builds on the way children learn naturally.

She opened the first Montessori school—the Casa dei Bambini, or Children’s House—in Rome on January 6, 1907. Subsequently, she traveled the world and wrote extensively about her approach to education, attracting many devotees. There are now thousands of Montessori schools in countries worldwide.

Maria Montessori was born on August 31, 1870, in the provincial town of Chiaravalle, Italy. Her father was a financial manager for a state-run industry. Her mother, raised in a family that prized education, was well schooled and an avid reader—unusual for Italian women of that time. The same thirst for knowledge took root in young Maria, and she immersed herself in many fields of study before creating the educational method that bears her name.

Beginning in early childhood, Maria lived in Rome, growing up in a paradise of libraries, museums, and fine schools.

Her early goal was to become a medical doctor. She entered an all male field and succeeded in her goal. She was the first female medical school graduate. Mara's early medical practice focused on psychiatry. She got interested in education and questioned the prevailing methods of teaching children with disabilities. 

She worked with children who had intellectual and developmental disabilities. Using her teaching methods these children succeeded. She had the opportunity to use her methods with children with non-disabilities in 1907. She created the first Casa de Bambini and thus began the Montessori method that helped children in all levels of development.
