The goal of early childhood education should be to activate the child's own natural desire to learn - Maria Montessori 

About Montessori

First of all, its not a religion (crazy... but that's what some people think!), it is however; one of the most important early years teaching practices of the last century and continues to evolve and educate people across the world.

Dr Maria Montessori developed a highly effective method of teaching that saw children learn best by doing and that happy self-motivated learners form positive images of themselves as confident, successful people. She created specially designed resources to foster independence and a love for learning from an early age.
