The History of Montessori

Maria Montessori and the history of Montessori education

Maria Montessori - Profile
Many of us would take the A, B, Cs we learned in Montessori for granted – but there’s far more to them and the woman behind the movement, Dr. Maria Montessori.

A, is for Adversary; which Maria Montessori faced at every corner, from her battle to study medicine to being put under surveillance by Mussolini. B, for Breaking Down Barriers – which she did, fighting for fair education for children with intellectual disabilities. And C, for Children, of course; always at the heart of her ground-breaking research (and many of whom you may recognise along the way!)
