Dr. Maria Montessori, an Italian physician, developed the Montessori method of education over 100 years ago. Through her observations of children at work and play, Dr. Montessori recognized that humans experience distinctive developmental periods in their journey from birth to adulthood. Montessori knew that if children were placed in a learning environment specifically designed to meet their needs at a particular developmental period, learning would be effortless, joyful, and satisfying.
