At-Home Learning Resources
Many parents who choose Montessori education for their children often familiarize themselves with its underlying principles so they can incorporate elements of Montessori practice into their relationships with their children and into the structures of their homes. This is ideal because when children are young, they have not yet learned to compartmentalize their experiences; instead, they experience life as one comprehensive whole. Montessori education begins in the classroom, but is, in turn, strengthened when parents choose to bring the Montessori approach into their homes.
We at North American Montessori want to help as much as we can. Below, we have provided resources for parents and caregivers that can help you reinforce what your child learns in the classroom. You’ll find everything from Montessori parent blogs and printable activities to educational videos and more!
