Maria Montessori passed down a wonderful heritage: a life philosophy, a unique approach to education, self-teaching material and a teacher’s training system. This heritage is aimed at training adults that will be attentive to children’s needs, their overall development and who will gain solid life tools.

Deeply humanist, Maria Montessori wanted children to be fulfilled and become makers of a better world. For her, a child is not only a person worthy of our interest but mainly the future of society.

Her message is relevant now more than ever in this changing world :

“We should not raise our children in today’s world, this world will no longer exist once they grow up.”
