Using practical Montessori Principles to meet the challenges of modern parenting
Understanding simple Montessori-inspired principles and incorporating them into everyday family life the results will satisfy both child and adult.
Using a practical Montessori-inspired approach in your home doesn't require expensive specialist Montessori equipment, nor does it require parental perfection.
As an experienced Early Childhood professional I would love to teach and support you to:
Understand the principles which underpin Montessori education, how to apply them and which specific areas are particularly relevant to the developmental needs of your child.
Put the motto 'Help me to do it myself' into practise and understand your child's drive for independence and meaningful 'work' (play).
Build your child's skills, confidence and resilience.
Understand how to protect and develop concentration.
Sort through the many toys and activities you already have and understand which best serve the current developmental needs of your child.
Demonstrate how to use the toys you have in new ways. Categorised and organised differently they will have new appeal to your child and will better meet their developmental needs.
Create new activities which satisfy the child's quest for independence.
Organise the space so your child has an area where they can 'work' independently.
Value the beauty of order and simplicity.
If any of the above appeals to you, contact me.
