Educators working according to the educational methods of Montessori are not supposed to form a child’s soul by force, but to invest pedagogical energy in material or methodological curricula.
Montessori pedagogy is based on a comprehensive system of elaborated methodologies that blend together. It is an important and recognized system of alternative education worldwide.
The goal of Montessori pedagogy is to educate free, responsible and independent personalities who can solve problems, listen to each other, protect our planet, understand the surrounding world and the universe in its entirety.
