History of Montessori
Eden Montessori International School Algarve Portugal
Maria Montessori, a 20th century educational pioneer and the first female physician in Italy, developed what has become known as the Montessori method. From her interest in Human Development and through observations and findings of how children learn, she was inspired to return to the University of Rome to study psychology and philosophy. She developed a sensory based curriculum with hands on materials. In 1906 she founded her first Casa del Bambini (Childrens House) to teach 60 underprivelidged children, the first of many to come. She can be credited with creating an environment with child-sized furnishings and carefully crafted materials to assist children in their development; things we take for granted in schools or daycares today. The least that can be said of Maria Montessori is that she was a woman with incredible insight, intellect, and genius.
I see, I remember;
We are the only authentic Montessori school in the Algarve and as of last year have been completely full with a long waiting list. Our current building only has 2 classrooms and we are in desperate need of a new building in which to expand so that we can offer Montessori education to more children, as well as to offer middle school and high school education levels.
To do this, we need your help and have created a new building fund managed through our partner charitable association to support our goal of creating a wonderful new and larger facility to provide the best education to our students.
Please support us. In exchange we can offer you acknowledgement on our website and other social media, discounts on tuition if you would like to enrol your child with us, and naming rights on certain facilities in the new school.
For more information about this, please email us.
