THE PEDAGOGY

Our school follows the Montessori Pedagogy

This pedagogy carries the woman who dedicated her life to it: Dr Maria Montessori.

Because it is not a registered trademark (it was her will), her name is now widely used in various fields, for more or less identifiable reasons. To help you find your way around, we offer the resources below, in various formats.

THE DISCOVERY OF THE CHILD

Maria Montessori

"To organize the school in such a way as to respect the child's rhythms: before many others, Maria Montessori had experimented and thought out a progression by cycles for the education of children.
With this text, "The Child", she presents us with the first two of these cycles, from 0 to 6 years old; the other three will be developed in “From Child to Adolescent”.”

MARIA MONTESSORI SPEAKS TO PARENTS

Maria Montessori

We have added to The Montessori Series this small volume with 11 lectures in which Maria Montessori gives parents an introductory explanation of her vision on education. There always has been a great need on the part of the parent to be as knowledgeable as possible about child development and the essence of Montessori education. Maria Montessori never underestimated the role of the parent, which is why she wrote special lectures for parents during courses and congresses. Recently we found in the pedagogical Archives of Maria Montessori an unpublished coherent set of small writings addressed to parents. We added a small biography of Maria Montessori for those parents who do not know her. Paula Polk Lillard, the internationally respected Montessori author, wrote the Foreword, in which she describes her transition from a traditional public school teacher to a Montessori mother, teacher and trainer.

THE MONTESSORI PEDAGOGY

Charlotte Poussin

“In 1907, Maria Montessori, one of the first female doctors in Italy, opened a school of a new kind serving a unique vision of the child, seen as a free and full-blown person, who learns spontaneously. Her method? A pedagogy which respects what the child is, the stages of their development, their requirements, their needs.
This project of a new education, which is part of the promotion of universal peace and progress, is based on three pillars: a particular posture of the educator, a prepared environment and specific educational materials.
But much more than a method, Montessori pedagogy is a state of mind, which is not limited to an age group or to a school, and whose principles are now confirmed by research in neuroscience and development psychology
."

Drawing from her long experience, Charlotte Poussin propose through this book of « intelligente simplification » superbly illustrated, to discover its origins, the foundations and its essential principals."

MARIA MONTESSORI :A LIFE TO THE SERVICE OF CHILDREN

Martine Gilsoul & Charlotte Poussin

"Maria Montessori (1870-1952), one of the first female doctor of Italy, is internationally renowned for her pedagogy  and the schools carrying her name. The atypical course of her life , almost romantic, is also very interesting. This biography reveals numerous aspects, allowing, beyond an Épinal-style image, to discover the «true Maria», simple, human, during all its path : her feminism, her modernity, her many journeys, the unwavering link with her son Mario, her achievements, her failures, her convictions, without eluding her fumbling. Along this Ariane thread that underlies her life's work : education to peace and freedom. Martine Gilsoul, in collaboration with Charlotte Poussin, explore here all the facets of Maria Montessori's itinerary and rich personality, wholly devoted to the cause of children and of her original thinking, revolutionary and pertinent, which stays relevant more than ever."
