We offer Montessori home consultations and design services to help you bring Montessori home.
Creating a Montessori home environment is one of the best gifts that parents can give to their children. Modern research estimates that about 50% of our brain development is genetic and 50% environmental, a function of how that genetic potential is used, or not used.
A recent study conducted by Cornell University shows that the physical environment profoundly influences children’s developmental outcomes, including academic achievement, cognitive, social and emotional development.
Dr. Montessori was one of the first educators to fully understand the importance of a quality living and learning environment for young children. She provided a framework and method for setting up an environment in which children can grow, learn and develop independence, confidence and self-esteem.
Providing children with an appropriate environment is of the utmost importance during the first six years of life, as they have an almost limitless capacity for “taking in” the whole of their surroundings. At this age, they are gifted with an “Absorbent Mind”: they have the ability to soak up knowledge from their environment and teach themselves effortlessly.
We specialize in helping parents prepare a home environment that enhances children’s well being and promotes harmony at home.
