Courses








Hey! I'm Nicole Kavanaugh and Montessori parenting is my jam. In addition to parenting my own 4 children with Montessori, since 2017 I've been helping hundreds of families from around the world bring Montessori into their homes. And, I can do the same for you! 


By working with me, you can grow to a deeper understanding of how Montessori can work for your family. I want to bring you a deep understanding of not only Montessori principles but practical tips and advice on bringing Montessori into your home. With my help, you can find the joy of Montessori with your own children on your own terms.


Are you new to Montessori? Or looking to dive deeper? It can be tough without support and guidance. I'm here to help! Below you'll find a variety of course offerings to help and support you on your Montessori journey. There's a little something for everyone.

Each of these courses includes a private community, live video support, and practical information on how to bring Montessori to life in your home. Each is co-taught with Aubrey Hargis. Check the quick guide schedule below for upcoming course dates.


These courses can help you with everything from preparing your Montessori home, to potty learning, and cooking with your child. Each course is designed to help both beginners learn about the topic, and for more experienced Montessorians to dive deeper and expand their understanding of these important aspects of Montessori parenting.


Occasionally, I will offer online workshops to learn more about specific Montessori topics. See the schedule below for current workshop dates and times:

The Ultimate Montessori Toy List -- Birth to Five -- UPDATED 2021

When you are interested in Montessori, it can be difficult to know exactly what types of products you should get for your home. Or which types of "Montessori" materials are really worth the price. There are no rules about types of products can use the name Montessori which can add to the confusion. Not to mention, every toy manufacturer slaps the word "educational" on the package for good measure! 2021 UPDATE: Please be patient with links this year, with supply chain issues things are selling out faster and restocking slower. I anticipate some of the specialty toys will not restock once they are gone. Puzzles, in particular, have been difficult to find in stock. So, with this post, I'm going to try to help with this confusion! Here's a list of Montessori-friendly toys and materials for babies, toddlers and preschoolers.  First, let's clarify that there is no such thing as a "Montessori toy." Montessori never created toys, bu

Montessori Toddler: Favorite Toys and Activities 18 to 20 months

I've been putting off this post for a little while because I felt a little disappointed that I didn't have more to share. See, Teddy just isn't that into materials, especially those on the shelf. He tends to return to a couple of favorites over and over again and ignore all other attempts at shelf work. But, really that's my own adult feelings getting in the way of Teddy's own interests, and developmental path.  It's also me subconsciously valuing fine motor skills and stillness as more important than gross motor play and movement. I working hard not to do that, and want to normalize that all toddlers are different. All children have different interests and that concentration doesn't have to mean sitting still for long stretches of time.  This post contains affiliate links at no cost to you. With all that said, here are some of Teddy's favorites over the last couple of months. Favorite Montessori Toys 18 to 20 Months I'm listing the toys that have be
