What to expect: Montessori Mornings is a free series that will have a topic of interest each session. This is not a lecture-based class, but rather a space for like-minded caregivers to come together, have an open discussion, and learn a bit along the way. We will have a small Montessori environment set-up for the infants and toddlers to enjoy while we, the adults, observe and discuss. Bridget (Montessori in Motion) and Theresa (Montessori in Real Life) have been using Montessori at home with their little ones and are happy to answer any questions you have!
After some introductions, we will discuss a few ways to respectfully communicate with babies and toddlers, including limit setting and accepting emotions. By learning to observe and speak respectfully to your child, we are able to develop mutually respectful and deeply trusting relationships with our children. We will provide examples from our own homes and classrooms, with a handout for you to take home. Most importantly, your baby will get a chance to play in a safe, prepared environment in the fresh air!
Note: Even if you have attended a previous session, you must RSVP each week since space is limited!
