Montessori At Home!’s mission: To encourage parents to do Montessori early learning activities with their 2-6 year old children; and to support their efforts..
I spent over a decade creating Montessori Prepared Environments and assisting young children in using them. Not one day of that time felt like going to work. Young children are the coolest people I know. I feel very privileged to have played a small part in helping them realize more of their potential. Now I want to do the same on a larger scale, through parents!
The vehicle for that is a unique resource just for parents of preschoolers, the Second Edition of the Montessori At Home! Ebook, available on this site starting today. 296 pages of Montessori how-to information just for parents, over 250 activities you can easily do at home covering all the content areas found in every Montessori preschool, an incredible number of links to sites and videos (many for your child to watch!) supporting and expanding the information in the book, and 42 pages of printable materials to use with different activities. All for just $8.95. Check the home page for much more information.

You can give your child many of the important benefits of a Montessori preschool right at home, for the price of a fancy coffee drink and a muffin per week!
The first vital component is YOU. If you are already doing early learning activities at home, fantastic – I hope you make this a regular stop for ideas and inspiration. If you understand how important the early years are and want to do something to help your child, but are not sure where to begin, the ebook can get you started right away. If you are just discovering the incredible importance of a child’s first six years of life, welcome!
