The Montessori system of education, named after Dr. Maria Montessori has today, become synonymous with pre-school education. Her concepts revolutionized the way the world saw small children.

The key elements of the Montessori Method are Self-education, individual instruction, didactic materials, a specially prepared environment and the trained directress.

Knowing how to observe constructively and when, and how much, to intervene is one of the most important talents that the Montessori teacher acquires during a rigorous course of training.
