10 Things to Know When You're New to Montessori

Montessori is a whole world of information. Especially today in a culture of Montessori influencers, blogs, companies, and Montessori schools all sharing information about Montessori. It can feel like an overwhelming amount of information thrown at you at once.  It can feel like you need to know all the information before you can even attempt to start Montessori at home. 

But, let me tell you, that's not true! We all start somewhere, Montessori parenting doesn't have to be this big scary world with a million rules. At it's heart, we know that Montessori has some basic truths that can influence your parenting and home. Things like:

"Montessori parenting emphasizes independence, freedom within limits, and respect for a child's natural development."

If you understand that, you know that your role as a Montessori parent is to support that independence, to set limits and act with respect toward your child. 

"Encourage independence through everyday tasks like dressing, and cleaning which promote a sense of dignity, community, and fine motor skills."

Our work as a Montessori parent includes really simple activities like practical life work. This work is not just about creating little helpers, but has very real consequences for your child and for your family home.
