Dr. Maria Montessori said, "Children are human beings to whom respect is due, superior to us by reason of their innocence and of the greater possibilities of their future." She was a remarkable woman who made huge contributions to early childhood education. "The Montessori Method" is in use in all parts of the world, and is especially well suited to enhancing growth and development of infants, toddlers and young children. We will discuss the life of Maria Montessori and her theories of learning and methods of teaching.
