Dr. Maria Montessori (1870-1952) was one of the most influential early child educators of the 20th century. She developed an educational method and philosophy to encourage children to grow as a whole, covering all aspects of development–intellectual, social, physical, emotional, and spiritual. The Montessori Method is based on her studies in psychiatry and education and her real-life application of principles and practices with disadvantaged children in Rome. Dr. Montessori went on to expand her philosophy into a unique instructional method designed to utilize and nurture the developmental instincts of children. ACA is dedicated to spreading the philosophy of Dr. Montessori Austin-wide.
