The Very First Montessori House of Children

It was the sixth of January 1907. The day was one of festivity – the day of Epiphany when the three rulers accompanied gifts to the Infant Jesus.

It was the day Signor Eduardo Alamo, head of Beni Stabili, a relationship of manufacturers and workers for hire, was hanging tight for in light of the fact that the apartment at 58 Via dei Marsi in the San Lorenzo Quarters would have been shielded from the offenses of the youngsters who continued annihilating the dividers and dirtying the flights of stairs. It was the first day of the season of the main Casa dei Bambini.

Traveling once more into the past, we find that Italy had arisen as a country and Rome had been picked as its capital. It is no big surprise that structures were being developed at an extraordinary speed. Structures were built for the well off and the tip top. It was additionally important to work for the common laborers. One such gathering of apartments was underlying the San Lorenzo Quarters. Some of them were abandoned and that prompted their occupation by solitary occupants. Numerous families lived in barbaric circumstances.

Some of them were involved by families where both the man and the spouse went out for day to day work. Extremely little youngsters went with the moms. Youngsters over six years old were shipped off schools for obligatory instruction. So the kid’s cama casinha in the range of two and six years were left in the apartments. The kids left behind neglected turned into an incredible danger to the structures. They were dynamic and had no direction. Signor Talamo needed to track down an approach to safeguarding the structures. He needed an approach to keeping the youngsters took part without a trace of the guardians. He had known about Maria Montessori and he mentioned her to help out him to incorporate the proposition.

Dr. Maria Montessori had consented to turn out to be essential for the plan however she had no clue about teaching the kids. The advertisers of the plan gave her tiny – a room and some weighty furnishings and arrangement for one chaperon. She could convince them to give some noontime food. That was all.

She found several partners however both were uninformed, halfway proficient. The room was excessively little for the quantity of youngsters. There were no appealing things and the dividers were uncovered. There was a major pantry wherein were kept some material that Madame Montessori had brought. Be that as it may, it was kept locked. The material was planned for a few psychometric analyses. Indeed, even Dr. Montessori considered the youngsters uneducable as the periods of the kids were less than six years.

Fifty-odd kids, most unfortunate of poor people, doubtful of outsiders, threatening to the climate, with no contact with human culture, whose guardians had neither positive nor pessimistic components in their treatment could depict compactly the state of the youngsters.

Sorrowful and scared, so modest that it was difficult to inspire them to talk; their countenances were bland, with stupefied eyes like they have not seen anything like this previously. The poor deserted kids had experienced childhood in dull tumble-down houses without anything to invigorate their psyches – sad and neglected. It was excessive so that a specialist could see that they experienced hunger. They resembled shut blossoms without the newness of buds, spirits covered in an airtight cell, E.M. Standing expounds on Montessori’s portrayal of the youngsters.
