Montessori education is a child-centred learning approach that promotes independent thinking and creativity, and gives children the freedom to make their own spontaneous choices. It has been developed from the research of the Italian doctor and educator, Maria Montessori, who worked with children with special educational needs in the early 20th century. Beautiful toys – from beads to wooden blocks, peg puzzles, wooden figures and shapes - become educational tools to encourage learning through play. Engagement with the natural world is a key feature of Montessori education too.
