Montessori education got its name from Maria Montessori who was an Italian educator. She had developed her idea of education while working with mentally challenged students. Her method of teaching had been proven to be highly effective. Children are given freedom in their education system.
Montessori believed that children should acquire knowledge on their own pace. Teachers are only there to guide the children but not force knowledge down children’s throat. Schools that have adopted the Montessori way of education will provide self-learning environment for children all over the world.
