Maria Montessori Home
“Maria Montessori Home” is about the natural vision on the growth and education of children, the role of parent and educator by discovering the childhood universe, is the place that houses carefully the Montessori principles and ideas .
Our motto is to offer children an environment as simple and natural to learn for themselves, to have the opportunity to be independent and self-discipline, to learn the skills that will help them in everyday life, to develop their creativity and to have harmonious relationships with others. Respect, kindness and understanding the needs are the main drivers that will guide the work with each child.
“Maria Montessori Home” is not about mechanic learning, conformism, notes and competitiveness, is the house where detachment from parents is made in a warm way, where children are seen in their complexity.
Maria Montessori (1870 -1952), Italian physician and educator has created a special method of educating children, Montessori method, and it is set up in schools arround the world wich applies with success this method. She was fascinated by the search for truth about the child and then had the privilege to discover it as it should be natural, calm, interesting, present, vivacious responsible.
She collected observations, educational experiments, conclusions that she gathered in a educational approach that guides us beautifully towards understanding the child.
