The Montessori Toddler

The Montessori Toddler

by Simone Davies


In the early 20th century, Dr. Maria Montessori came up with a new method of teaching children – one that involved encouraging independence, observing their interactions, and acknowledging their capacity to absorb and respond to their surroundings. Since then, the Montessori method has since been applied at schools around the world, and now, you can apply it at home.

Simone Davies is a mother and trained Montessori practitioner, who runs the Jacaranda Tree Montessori school in Amsterdam. In The Montessori Toddler, Davies reconstructs the Montessori educational methods in a way that is easy for any parent to understand and implement in the home.

We live in a new and ever-changing world that puts increasing pressure on the younger generation to 'break the mold' without being taught how. If you are a parent inundated with 'advice' and 'how-to' guides on the internet and you're looking for a way to support your child in their independent growth then this is the book for you.

Favorite quote

We are kind to each other. This means that even if we disagree, we will not hurt each other physically or tease each other; it teaches children to respect themselves and each other.
