Your personal guide in all things Montessori,
facilitating understanding of how and why Montessori matters
Somewhere along your journey as a Montessori educator, parent, or caregiver,
you'll begin to realize what truly matters.
Although the carefully designed, handcrafted materials are beautiful and inviting, they're only one piece of the puzzle. It is our personal preparation and the relationship we build with the child that matters most, for it is through these parts of our journey that we can truly bring Montessori to life.
"...the teacher must know and experience in her daily life the secret of childhood. Through this she arrives not only at a deeper knowledge, but at a new kind of love which does not become attached to the individual person.... And this revelation transforms her also. It is a thing that touches the heart, and little by little it changes people."
