Childcare Services in Kanata
The amazing woman behind the Montessori approach of childcare education is Maria Montessori. She was the first woman doctor of Italy and was born in 1870. She developed this approach while working with children with “learning challenges” and carefully observing how they interacted with the environment. Her approach was also based on her studies of the educational philosophies of eminent educators at that time including Froebel and Rousseau.
Maria Montessori found that young children learn best in a spirit of freedom within a carefully prepared and orderly environment. She found that they needed to feel a sense of security along with the freedom to explore.
