Have you ever wondered what Montessori is? Many of us have heard the name "Montessori" but do not know what Montessori teaches. For over 100 years the Montessori Method, based on the scientific observations of Maria Montessori, the first female physician in Italy, has universally educated pre-schoolers in Practical Life Skills, Sensorial Awareness, Language Development, Art, Music, Science, and Mathematics. It is a natural way of learning through modeling, freedom of choice, and self-discovery with the aid of manipulatives and trained guides to facilitate absorbent minds in becoming life-long learners and innovators. Contemporary literature about Montessori is limited. Montessori for You and Your Child: Frequently Asked Questions of Parents and Grandparents Considering AMI Primary Montessori Education for Three to Six Year Olds is a practical question and answer format book that unveils the mystery of the Montessori Method so families can make an informed choice for their children. Mary Da Prato, an early childhood development specialist, is a graduate of Montessori Institute Northwest and holds an Association Montessori Internationale (AMI) Primary Diploma for teaching 3-6+ year old children that is recognized by 110 countries as a high standard of excellence in guiding early childhood development through theory, observation, presentation of materials, and other age appropriate activities.
