A Step By Step Guide – How to Easily Integrate Montessori at Home Like a Pro

I discovered Montessori when I began researching school options for my oldest son. It was an article about Dr. Maria Montessori. I remember the moment, sitting at my laptop as my son napped one overcast afternoon.

I realized immediately that Dr. Montessori’s philosophy is exactly how I was raised by my mother. The Montessori theory more than resonated with me. It made sense to me. It seemed second nature to me. Getting certified seemed a natural next move. Soon I began a Montessori training program and applied the Montessori method in our home. 

Montessori ideals make children more engaged and inquisitive while also encouraging a lifetime love of learning without making them feel forced to learn.

Why Montessori?

Through the Montessorian Method, children acquire the traits of:

  • Responsibility
  • Self Regulation
  • Initiative
  • Independence
  • Confidence

As you continue on this Montessori journey, remind yourself to be patient. Changing behavior and integrating a different philosophy on how you’re going to manage your home and be a family will take time.

Frustration will present itself but you will also have triumphant moments. Celebrate and honor those moments, as fleeting or as defining as they may be.
