The Age of Montessori Legacy
Maria Montessori launched a revolution in education with the opening of the first Children’s House in 1907 in Rome. Her friend and student, Dr. Elisabeth Caspari, gave Montessori teacher education in the United States a big boost in the early 1950’s with the opening of her Montessori school in Lee’s Summit, Missouri, and the establishment of her Montessori teacher training course in the 1970’s.
In 1980, Elisabeth Caspari and Mary Ellen Maunz launched a Montessori teacher certification program that is now the Age of Montessori. In 2011, Age of Montessori launched its online component of the early childhood training that puts you into the picture of Maria Montessori’s legacy.
