The Montessori Method
Maria Montessori, the first female physician from Italy, was born in 1870. In her medical practice,
her clinical observation led her to analyze how children learn and how they build themselves from
what they find in their environment. Dr. Montessori believed that education starts at birth. Studies
have shown that 75% to 80 % of the learning takes place before the age of six years. Therefore it is
very important that pre-school children be provided with the right environment and proper
There are three important components of the Montessori Method.
Montessori emphasizes the uniqueness of the child. It is tailored to the strengths and challenges of
each student. The children’s innate passion for learning is encouraged by giving them opportunities
in purposeful activities with the guidance of a trained adult.
In a Montessori class room the environment is prepared. The material is attractive and placed on
low shelves. There are puzzles, colored beads, metal insets, geometric solids and various specialized
rods and blocks. These materials are specially designed to teach different concepts.
A guide is a trained adult who leads the children in the class room. She is educated in human growth
and development, in observation skills, teaching strategies and class room management. At Cypress
Creek Children’s Montessori School of Frisco we provide the child with the environment rich in
sensory materials. Here he can pursue his love of learning with the guidance of a well trained and
experienced adult who is a guide.
