Weekend Montessori Reading

Did you hear this week the Montessori Centenary Child's Garden won Gold at the 2019 RHS Chelsea Flower Show? It's such fabulous news!! "Celebrating the pioneering vision for Early Years education introduced in Britain by Maria Montessori in 1919, garden designer, Jody Lidgard’s, first Chelsea Flower Show Space To Grow garden reflects the very principles at the heart of a Montessori approach to education.  Child-led and future-driven, the garden was designed to provide a Montessori classroom space to nurture children, teaching them about the natural world alongside the modern technology that is the future of horticulture." - Montessori St Nicholas

This space has so much to inspire us from the propagating greenhouse including hydroponic technology, living fern wall, wormery, dipping pond and water play station to a snip, tear and taste garden. More photos at Real Homes and Royal Horticultural Society

Here are a few other articles I've been enjoying:

Above Otis and Otto are enjoying some painting outside but are getting thoroughly messy, their bodies were covered in paint, do you allow this type of play?

We are spending the long weekend in a forest cabin in Cornwell, it is so beautiful and peaceful. We hope to visit the Eden Project too. I'll post some photographs soon. I hope you have a lovely weekend!
