One of the most special and fundamental aspects of the Montessori philosophy is teaching peace. Montessori education centers on the peace curriculum.
A wonderful way to introduce a big concept like “peace” is through children's books. Integrating the ideas behind this piece of the Montessori curriculum into your home is doable. So I hope we can take this journey together. Be sure to check out my Montessori posts on teaching peace. Peace education is vital and the approach needs to be holistic beginning first with preparing yourself and creating the environment.
“The child is endowed with an inner power which can guide us to a more luminous future. Education should no longer be mostly about the imparting of knowledge, but must take a new path, seeking the release of human potentialities.”
