About Me

Welcome to Everyone Can Montessori!

I’m updating to say that I’m coming back to my blog after a year of taking a break from it. In that time I had my third child! We didn’t stop our activities but I did mostly discontinue photographing and blogging about it due to such a busy schedule.

I am a mother of two three and just beginning preschool at home with my oldest child children. Through my research I believe that the hands-on approach of the Montessori method of teaching is the best thing for young children. I would most likely send my children to a Montessori preschool if we could afford it, but this is probably the next best thing.

My goal with this blog is to show others that the Montessori hands-on approach to preschool learning can be accomplished and afforded by anyone. I will be sharing the activities we come up with, as well as videos and ideas I find inspirational.

My blog may include things that are outside the scope of Montessori but I plan to keep my domain name the same because Montessori learning was/is such a huge inspiration to me! Another huge inspiration to me are all of the MANY other parent bloggers out there that have so generously shared all of their ideas (and where I get MANY of my ideas as well).

~Thanks for reading and hope you enjoy my blog~

  1. We are just starting to explore Montessori too, my kids are 8 and 5. I’m also explore other approaches just to see what will work best for us. I look forward to reading your blog and learning a bit from you as well. Thanks!

    • That’s great you’re looking into Montessori for your kids! My kids are very young right now so the Montessori approach works very well for us, because young children are especially hands-on. As they get older I may have to adjust depending on how they want/need to learn. Thanks for your comment!

  2. Hello, I’m glad you have returned to blogging. Congratulations on your new baby. I know very little about Montessori; but what I have read, I really like. I am a retired high school English teacher and a brand new blogger. Now, I evaluate schools for Positive Behavioral Intervention and Support, and next month I am scheduled to evaluate a Montessori school. I’m very excited about it. I, too, believe that the hands-on approach is the best means of learning. Isn’t that how we learn in the “real” world?

    • Thank you! Yes, the hands-on approach makes so much sense. I often struggled with learning math as a child and I think a huge part of that was the text book and work sheet style of learning that is so common in public schools. The Montessori approach uses physical materials that aid and simplify that abstract kind of learning. I also love the focus on practical life skills. It seems like academic learning is pushed on kids these days with not enough focus on real life skills that are so important for success in adult life. Thanks for your comment and good luck with your new blog!
