Welcome to the inaugural post for our “Montessori Defined Series”!

The term Montessori is popping up everywhere these days. I am really excited that the philosophy is getting attention because there is huge potential within education reform ALL OVER THE WORLD if schools, families and communities begin to integrate Montessori philosophy.

Still, though, there are many questions about the philosophy especially since the term is being used so frequently these days.

So, I am launching a ‘Montessori Defined’ series. It’ll be simple. One definition, once a week.

It seems a good place to start is with the term: MONTESSORI

“The term may refer to Dr. Maria Montessori, founder of the Montessori Method of education, or the method itself.”
