One of the greatest innovators in education and cognitive psychology was Maria Montessori. Unlike other famous well-known innovators of her time, such as Jean Piaget and John Dewey, her work was extremely practical. She was less interested in why children did things at a certain time than in providing ways to support and enhance healthy development and learning.
Though child-size furniture, objects for young mathematicians to manipulate, and the innovations we now call, ‘hands-on learning,’ are almost universally accepted today, Montessori originated them all. Less than 30 years ago, it was hard to find well-designed furniture sized for a three-year-old. Yet Montessori was promoting and providing these innovations in1907. The true test of an innovator is that his, or her, ideas are now common practice.
Montessori for Everybody is devoted to making these revolutionary learning ideas available to parents and teachers of all children. We even believe they hold many of the keys to dynamic, effective, enjoyable training experiences for adults as well. Learn how you can begin to use Montessori’s ideas to make learning a delightful, productive experience for all those you teach and parent.
