If you’ve been a listener of First Time Mum’s Chat for some time then you will know that I’m a big fan of the montessori parenting style and encouraging babies and infants to develop their own imagination, fun and activities and earlier this year, I put together an episode of First Time Mum’s Chat focusing on the Montessori Method which very much encourages this approach.

I received a lot of feedback following this episode so I’ve been on the lookout for someone qualified in the montessori parenting style. I was delighted to recently meet Daniela Hoyle who is currently a head teacher for the toddlers program at a Montessori school in California.

Daniela is a certified infant and toddler Montessori guide and in this episode we have a chat about montessori parenting and particularly its application to infants during their first 12 months.

I’m sure you’ll find Daniela’s pearls of wisdom on the montessori parenting style as interesting and inspiring as I did and you’ll hear us talk about the importance of:-

  • Talking to your baby to encourage their development and imagination.
  • Connecting with your child as much as you can during their first year and letting them participate in your activities.

And much more!
