Montessori Fundamentals

Montessori fundamentals

I've been feeling disheartened this week. I took a step back to revisit the basics. I really wanted to share. 


  • Treat the child with the same respect as you would give an adult;
  • Be consistent in your approach to the child;
  • Provide encouragement and refrain from correction unless absolutely necessary;
  • Provide an ordered and secure environment and routine;
  • Allow the child to work at their own pace and without interference;
  • Allow the child to be actively involved in decision making;
  • Allow the child to have responsibility within their capabilities.


Simple. Not easy. Fundamental.
