A different way of approach on the educational section is the Montessori approach, which guides children to discover their needs involving body and mind. From our early stage of existence we notice that we have the ability to absorb with greater ease much more things, and as we get older this ability fades out. That is the reason why we start attending school from our early years, as the age between six and twelve is considered as calm and conductive to learning. This is a method that gives children the freedom to explore their own needs through senses and special learning materials. It is not based on a pre-defined curriculum which would possibly cause the reaction of the child, but it gives them the chance to construct their selves within a ‘favorable environment’.
The Montessori Method was found in the early 1900s by Dr. Maria Montessori, the first woman in Italy to receive a medical degree. Her main contributions in raising and educating children were the preparation of a natural and life – supporting environment, their observation in living freely in this environment and the continuous adaptation of the environment in order that the child may fulfill his or her greatest potential, physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.
