Dr. Montessoris Own Handbook by Maria MontessoriDr. Montessori revolutionised the way children were educated in the late 19th and early 20th century. Her method involved both the physiological and psychical development of the child, divided into three parts:
Her first innovation was to provide children with a learning environment adapted to their needs, i.e. introducing child size furniture they could easily use and move around themselves. Her teachers were trained to adopt a largely non-interventionist approach to teaching, which would lead to auto-education for the children through trial and error alongside imitation of each other.
She also produced a range of simple but ingenious learning products which she manufactured and sold, but they could be easily replicated by any school unable to afford them. These mainly involved shapes and numbers and differing shapes and colours.
After reading this simple handbook, I feel fairly confident that even a clueless bachelor like me could educate a bunch of kids to an agreeable standard. It doesnt surprise me that her methods are still the cornerstone of childrens education today.
In my country of England alone an award named after her is the accepted accreditation, and a website in her name, www.dailymontessori.com, is still maintained.
This single piece of advice speaks volumes: never be the obstacle between the child and his experience.
And not a single reference to spanking either!

Our daughter is learning in a way which promotes her independence and allows her true potential and personality to shine through. She is treated as an individual and taught to embrace her own unique thoughts and ideas. The kindness and nurturing she receives from RMS staff has had a direct effect on her capacity for compassion and empathy for others. As a new family to the RMS community, we have been struck by how friendly, engaging and lovely the staff and other families are.
