What is Montessori Learning? 

The Montessori approach, developed by Dr. Maria Montessori in the early 1900s, is a child-centered educational method that focuses on nurturing each child's innate curiosity, creativity, and independence. Montessori learning encourages hands-on, self-paced exploration and discovery, allowing children to develop at their own pace and reach their full potential.
