What is Momtessori?

Actually . . . I just made that up. You see, I am a Montessori trained teacher (and teacher at heart) and now I am a full time mom - so I am a Momtessorian! For all the Montessori purists out there who might have happened upon this site, this is not a "purist" site. For all the moms, dads, grandparents, caregivers, teachers and friends who want some inspiration, information and ideas to help spark the inner being of the precious one(s) in your life. . . welcome! Hopefully you will be able to recreate some of these traditional Montessori ideas in a relaxed, intimate way with your special one using the things around your house (or a quick trip to the dollar store!)

Now, I am not "perfect", an "expert", nor do I have all the answers. My house is dirty (a lot of the time), my kids are in their pajamas at lunch sometimes, and I lose my patience (more than I want). However, when I slow down and spend time, and I mean quality time, teaching, exploring and playing with my three year old, it's a great day! My goal for this blog is for you, too, to enjoy and help mold these precious years with your wee one. Watch the wheels start turning and let learning come alive!
