A Note From the Teacher, Ms. Michele
Teachers in the Montessori classroom act as “guides” that are there to assist in the learning experience, rather than determine what the experience will be. Teachers develop the curriculum based on the children in the classroom. They will not determine the pace of the classroom as that is left up to individual students. Montessori teachers attempt to be as unobtrusive as possible.
Montessori at Home
Your child's interest
First and foremost learn your child’s unique interests. Whether it is art, music, or gardening. Be sure to observe your child so you can learn what they spend most of their free time doing and then honor those interests. For example, if they lean towards art, set up an area of your home where they can be free to paint or draw. You can also set up an area for them to hang their artwork so they can feel proud of what they have created!
