Montessori started as an educational system but has become a lifestyle. It has become a way to raise children, from birth, to allow them to blossom at their own pace, discover their own interests, develop deep concentration, and become fiercely independent.
This happens through the creation of a prepared environment, respect from an adult, and a focus on following the child.
The birth of the Montessori method
At the turn of the 20th Century, Dr. Maria Montessori set out to study children in poor neighborhoods in Italy.
What she discovered has become a parenting and educational revolution that has spread throughout the entire world.
Dr. Montessori discovered that children are born with the power to grow, and learn completely on their own. They have the tools within themselves, to become the best person they were meant to be, if they are in the right environment.
She also noted that there are adult-created obstacles in the way of a child reaching his/her full potential.
At Montiplay, we set out to empower parents to enable their children's growth to become the happiest, and most confident they could be.
