I have written about why we Montessori. “Montessori, for me, has a lot to do with the unmeasurable, the intangible and invaluable. The life-long love of learning and discovery, the self awareness, the self-confidence, the ability to contribute, be heard, question and challenge things and make mistakes. It’s about working with (not against) the individual child and keeping their childhood.” Similarly, how Montessori helps me be a better parent.
You can read about my favourite beginner Montessori at Home book here. If you are looking for Montessori Homeschooling Books, I have shared some of my favourites and I share my current reads in the sidebar. These are truly helpful for implementing Montessori at home.
I have also shared why I think you should still use Montessori Practical Life trays at home.
The Montessori way of toilet training (aka toilet learning) is quite different to mainstream toileting. I have shared our journey thus far with Montessori toddler toilet learning and updated recently.
There are so many misconceptions surrounding Montessori (particularly Montessori at home). I tried to dispel some of these myths in my Montessori mythbusters series. You can see the posts on those here: one, two and three.
I also had a lovely inspiring guest post from the couple behind Montessorium and several Montessori books that talks about a Different Approach to Montessori.
