What are people saying? “Our son is much more self-confident and independent. Even small changes have made a large difference! The Montessori Home Consultation has made my husband and I more confident as parents and more successful at preparing ourselves and our home for our son to grow and learn.” ~Katherine M.
“Ariane helped me understand what my daughter was capable of doing on her own. Ariane showed me how to organize her room and her belongings in a way that would give her the confidence and freedom to be independent. My daughter can pick out her own clothes, get dressed, put her clothes in the hamper, make her bed, set and empty the table... She loves being independent, being a 'big girl.' It is wonderful seeing her feel part of daily activities. She doesn't just play. She is involved. The Montessori Home Consultation was a huge help with a new baby at home.”
“I can already see progress in my children. They are more focused and confident. I highly recommend the Montessori Home Consultation!”
"Ariane is an absolute treasure. She has great respect for children and provides structured, compassionate and nurturing advice. She helped us prepare our home environment to successfully facilitate our daughter's growth, independence and development. Our now 18 month old daughter has thrived, and it has been our absolute delight to watch her reach a potential that we did not think was possible until much later." ~Maria P.
What are the benefits of a Montessori home consultation?
Creating a Montessori home environment is one of the best gifts that parents can give 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. 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 confidence, independence and self- esteem. Providing children with an appropriate environment is of all the more importance during the first six years of life, as they have an almost limitless capacity for "taking in" the whole of their surroundings. They are gifted with an "Absorbent Mind": they have the ability to soak up knowledge from their environment and teach themselves effortlessly.
