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.

Thank you for joining me on this journey.

    Yo — Iove it! This is super cute and fun and would have been invaluable when Nathan was a little guy. SInce Sky’s first food was stew a month ago and she has since graduated to bagels, whole fruits, pasta, pizza, etc (albeit USUALLY with homemade sauce and locally grown organic veggies thanks to our biweekly deliveries from Ful Circle Farm), we never broke out any of our puree tools. I swear she wants to do everything her big brother does. I will definitely be following this, though …

    This is awesome. I am so impressed you have the time not only to cook all this delicious food for Jack, but have the time to share it with others.

    Fun to read.

    Miss you,
