After years of expression mainly in pre-schools Montessori philosophy is finally being used as originally intended as a method of seeing children as they really are and of creating environments which foster the fulfillment of their highest potential – spiritual emotional physical and intellectual – as members of a family the world community and the Cosmos.
Dr. Montessori gave the world a scientific method practical and tested for bringing forth the very best in young human beings. She taught adults how to respect individual differences and to emphasize social interaction and the education of the whole personality rather than the teaching of a specific body of knowledge.
Montessori practice is always up-to-date and dynamic because observation and the meeting of needs is continual and specific for each child. When physical mental spiritual and emotional needs are met children glow with excitement and a drive to play and work with enthusiasm to learn and to create. They exhibit a desire to teach help and care for others and for their environment.
The high level of academic achievement so common in Montessori schools is a natural outcome of experience in such a supportive environment. The Montessori method of education is a model which serves the needs of children of all levels of mental and physical ability as they live and learn in a natural mixed-age group which is very much like the society they will live in as adults.
Today Montessori teacher training centers and schools exist on all continents. There are Montessori parenting classes Nidos (nests for infants) infant communities childrens houses (for age 3-6) and classes for children up to age eighteen in public and private schools. Montessori works in gifted and talented programs and for children with developmental disabilities of all kinds. Many parents are using Dr. Montessoris discoveries to raise/educate their children at home.
The discoveries of Maria Montessori are valuable for anyone living and working with children in any situation.
