Eszterlánc Hungarian-English Montessori bi-lingual kindergarten is located in Budapest. In this kindergarten the children will be guided, during working-time and playing-time, by two teachers through the whole day. One of the teachers will work with the children speaking English, the other one speaking Hungarian. This kindergarten might be new but the pedagogical method what they will work with dates back a 150 years. The founder, Maria Montessori, was the first Italian woman to get a diploma as a doctor. She started her career working in a clinic in Rome. It was there where she got interested in the development of small children. She started developing a special technique of working with the children and started to make special materials for them to work with. This was the beginning of a new pedagogical method which later got well known all over the world as the Montessori method.
