Greece Montessori School
Day Care & Preschools
The Greece Montessori School was established in 1971 by an interested group of parents who had met monthly for a year to study Montessori and then decided that there was a need in the area for a school offering the Montessori curriculum to pre-school children.
The History of Montessori
Maria Montessori was the first woman physician in Italy. An educator and humanitarian, she devoted her life to the study and observation of children. Her work was initially inspired by an interest in mentally deficient children. She developed a method of self-education for young children within a planned environment using carefully designed materials and equipment. The results of her method led to the establishment of Montessori schools around the world. The movement came to the United States in 1915. Only recently, with the new focus on the great learning potential of early childhood, has the Montessori method flourished in the United States.
