Montessori

At the turn of the 20th Century, Dr. Maria Montessori set out to study children in poor neighborhoods in Italy. What she discovered has become a parenting and educational revolution that has spread throughout the entire world. Dr. Montessori discovered that children are born with the power to discover, grow, and learn completely on their own. They have the tools within themselves, to become the best person they were meant to be, if they are in the right environment. However, she also discovered that there are adult-created obstacles in the way of a child reaching his/her full potential.
Montessori started as an educational system but has become a lifestyle. It has become a way to raise children, from birth, to allow them to blossom at their own pace, discover their own interests, develop deep concentration, and become fiercely independent. This happens through the creation of a prepared environment, respect from an adult, and a focus on following the child.

What is Montessori? 

For our family, Montessori has become our way of life. It is how we structure our home and raise our children. It influences the consumer products we purchase, our home design, our discipline, and how we educate our children. It has been my life's greatest joy watching our children become exactly who they were supposed to be, at exactly the time they were supposed to be! Montessori is joy, Montessori is peace, Montessori is our life.
