Programme Purpose

Montessori education is an educational proposal with wide international recognition. Dr Montessori developed an educational method along the first half of a twentieth century based on the scientific observation of children: the four planes of development, their potential, their interest and their skills.

Current scientific research still validate this pedagogical method as a set of elements that help children in their holistic development: mind, body and emotions.

Montessori Method can be implemented as a whole or gradually introduced in traditional school environments, enriching the everyday educational practice. Any environment where children are present can be improved under this pedagogical view.
