The term "Montessori" refers to an applied method of teaching that began in 1907 in Italy. Named after its founder, Dr. Maria Montessori, this teaching practice focuses on the belief that a child is the centre of their own learning — growing and exposing their true potential through challenging experiences versus teacher-lectured study.
