Mission

To be a resource to Montessori parents and educators, including homeschoolers, heads of schools and teachers. To inspire adults dedicated to developing the whole child to reach his potential.

Carrots Are Orange focuses on Montessori inspired ideas & activities for the home and classroom.

My philosophy is pretty simple: I believe children are capable of great things. Parents, educators and caretakers can help children most by creating an environment in which they can thrive independently and drive their own learning. I believe in developing a child’s “whole self” including intellectual development but also emotional and practical life development. My goal is to be accessible to you. I offer you an honest perspective and easy, accessible “to dos” with your child and classroom.

I am focused on developing my boys’ (ages 4 and 2.5 years old) “whole selves” so they can be confident, thoughtful, productive and independent individuals. Most of all, I want them to be happy. I will present and share with you Montessori inspired ideas ranging from sensory experiences, early financial literacy, traveling with kids, movement, practical life, language, arts and our Montessori home environment. Simplicity and accessibility is my goal. I am excited to share my experiences with you. It’d be nice to make you laugh every so often too!

I post about three times a week. Please ask questions, leave comments, subscribe to my feed, connect via Facebook, Pinterest and Google Plus. Also subscribe to my Enewsletter for bi-weekly updates.
