Montessori at home: How to bring Montessori into the home without turning your house upside down and spending hundreds of dollars
Most parents feel overwhelmed when they’re first getting into Montessori. They like the idea of encouraging independence and concentration but often feel the need to purchase all the same materials they see in classrooms.
Montessori in the home can be so much simpler than that.
By learning how to follow your child’s lead, include them in practical life activities, and make a few easy and low cost (or free!) changes around the home, you can achieve all the benefits of Montessori - without the cost or pressure.
I’ll go through each room in the home and show you where there’s opportunities to promote independence. I’ll also provide simple instructions to demonstrate practical life skills and other at-home Montessori activities.
