Dr. Maria Montessori was born in Italy, in 1870. She founded the first Casa Dei Bambini – Children’s
House, in 1906. Montessori education has a fundamental influence on all modern methods of
education. The primary need of education is to enable children to grow up into good citizens of
tomorrow’s world. The children in the prime of their age, 2 ½ - 7 ½ years, learn through the
Montessori system of education. It is a five-year continuous course based on the psychology of
the children. They learn on their own in a phased manner, using scientific and sophisticated
materials. The classroom milieu plays a significant role in the educational attainment of children,
promoting their inquisitiveness and inclination to learn.
