The Montessori Holiday Guide

Montessori holiday guideNow that we’re in the holiday season, it’s time to start thinking about ways to enjoy this special– but challenging– time with your children.

 
While most of the holiday commercialism runs counter to many of our families’ principles, it can seem nearly impossible to shield our children from the excesses of the season.

 

I wish you all the best in the weeks ahead and encourage you to keep in mind the insights we’ve learned from Montessori– chiefly these: children crave authentic, child-scaled activities including hands-on work like puzzles, cooking and crafts; they love creative play and movement; children hunger for books rich with language and images;  they live for making music and quiet moments, routine, family and togetherness most of all.

 

Enjoy this special time with your family!

Regards, John DeMarchi
