|The year 2007 marked the 100th anniversary of Dr. Maria Montessori's groundbreaking educational developments.
On January 6, 1907, Maria Montessori opened the first Casa dei Bambini in San Lorenzo, Italy.
The aim of the Centenary year has been to continue to fulfill Montessorià£¯re mission: To place all the children in our world at the centre of society and to assist them in becoming the transforming elements leading to a harmonious and peaceful humanity.
The Montessori Movement is more than en educational movement, it is a social movement intended to champion the cause of all children, in all strata of society, of all races and ethnic backgrounds, within and beyond the educational institutions.
The Montessori Centenary was celebrated all over the world, and Humberside Montessori School had a pleasure of hosting the Montessori Centenary Exhibition at it's only stop in Canada.
