The Greatest Gift: A Montessori Education

I […]

3 Simple Tips for the Busy Montessori Parent

I am a Mom. Not a teacher. Not an expert. And clearly not a child psychologist. I’m a Mom who loves her kids and does her best to help them navigate through this thing called life.  I mess up parenting (but hopefully not my children) every single day- in one way or another. When my oldest was […]

Why Being a Montessori Mom Changed My Life

 I will never forget the moment I heard about the Montessori school near my home. I can still picture where I was and who told me. I’m not sure why it sticks out in my memory, but my education as a Montessori parent began at that very moment. I read all the books and tried […]
