History Of Montessori Schools

In 1896 Maria Montessori was the first woman to graduate from the University of Rome Medical School. After years of working with young children in the inner city of Rome, Maria developed a new method of learning. Her goal was to establish a natural learning experience for children. Maria labeled that experience as the "Prepared Environment" This prepared environment instills a certain order and progression which enables children to learn.
