During my many years as a childcare educator, I’ve always tried to encourage the infants I’ve worked with to develop their own imagination and create their own fun and activities. Over the years, this has become increasingly challenging. There is so much competing for our kids’ attention spans today isn’t there! Whether it’s advertising or television or the internet or social media, the list goes on and on and on.

It has been my observation that with so much content on offer, many infants and parents are losing the ability to stimulate and build their own imagination. This is hardly surprising when smartphones are so accessible and easily available to infants at an early age. During my years as a child care educator. I’ve always been fascinated by the Montessori method and Montessori education approach and how it differs from mainstream childcare.

In this episode, I’m exploring the world of the Montessori method and Montessori education, since I feel it has so much to offer your little one, whether they be an infant, toddler or older child. You’ll hear me talk about:-

  • The Montessori Method and philosophy and why I think it’s great for infant development.
  • Montessori toys and ideas that are designed to promote natural learning and independence.
  • How the Montessori method and Montessori education can encourage your infant to be more environmentally conscious and aware.

And much more!
