Montessori - Shared screen with speaker view
Would love some input on how to explain the ethos to family members like grandparents … my litte one is 6months.
oh dear it froze for a bit then

We are currently reading your book and we really love it. Our question is you emphasise a lot on observation the child plays. Does that mean we let them play independently and not interact much? I find it hard to do it with little girl who is 7 month old, she loves a lot engagement and interaction with us at the moment during play time.
hi you're brilliant,I'm planning to homeschool my baby who's almost 11 months, how can I use Montessori method to pave the way for homeschooling?thanks a lot
are there any good places to buy small mops with replaceable heads as you mention my toddler wants to mop the floor alongside me all the time! the other day I found her cleaning up when her potty split... haven’t told the husband as the Melissa and Doug mop head doesn’t come off 😂
what age is best to start. also how expensive can it be ?
My only concern is: because the schools are private and expensive, will they grow in a very white upper class environment? My baby is white and I want him to be surrounded by as many cultures and races as possible.
@Sofia would love this for my kid too shes too young maybe for eight now but would love her to be surrounded by all different cultures and as make as many friends as poss
Catorina, we have a flat mop from Muji with a short handle and I use flannels on it and wash them with nappies, its quite small so a good size for my 18 month old but an adult with a retractable handle works too
What’s your take on screen time in Montessori ?
Dao Ngoc Diep
@redmi I definitely recommend getting Simone’s book. It’s brilliant and it gives you excellent guide on how to do Montessori at home. Very specific and thorough examples!
How are Montessori schools managing the limits imposed by the Covid-19 pandemic? We picked a Montessori school for my younger one and he loved the freedom to join in or do his own thing as he struggles with long periods where he has to join guided activities or communicate with others so that gave the flexibility for him to have short interactions with guided group activities and plenty of alone time playing or silent reading. Now I think that will be difficult to achieve with the restrictions they need to impose.
when you have a second child it’s sooo useful if your child can get their own water. we have a plastic jug in the fridge that she can reach. then she can get me water whilst breastfeeding too!
Our little boy sleeps on a floor bed and has from 5 months but took some persuading for grandparents to be ok with it!
Sofia, the school my son attends has mainly state funded pupils attending including those on the 2 year funding for low income families and has pupils from a wide range of international backgrounds and ethnicities
thanks Kierrah. that’s a good recommendation. I’ll take a look at Muji
Hi any tips for montessori activities and games for a 23 week old about to start weaning?
Rich & Jose
Really good to see this!
how do you teach them? is it lots of modelling until they master the skill?
what age do you start these activities as my little boy is 9 months so these would seem a bit advanced for him at moment or is that wrong and we should let him try?
OMG showing them wiping their nose in the mirror is was a game changer when my daughter was constantly sick after starting childcare
are we able to get a copy of these slides after the call?
highly recommend a book called the boy the fox and the mole its amazing I'm reading it to my 3 week old
boy fox mole and horse*
how can i watch this again. I was distracted

how much do you integrate nature and outdoors in Montessori (and how) compared to Steiner and Woldorf?
my little boy is 10 and a half months old. I'm finding it really difficult to engage with him. He's definitley more into independent play
Any book recommendation about Montessori pease?
would you recommend memory games ?
sorry I mean would you recommend doing memory games for montisorri
He's much happier sat playing with one individual thing alone, I can't seem to get him to watch or listen to anything I do. I feel like I'm not doing enough but he just won't engage just crawls off to sit alone and play, he's even now started turning his back on me to play. I love reading and have been trying to read to him since birth but he will just take the book off me and throw it and crawl away to play with something else. how can I engage with him more. sorry my question split into two
Dao Ngoc Diep
That’s a brilliant answer, thank you so much!
Just wanted to say thanks so much for your book - it’s really transformed how we parent our daughter. I have been so inspired! I can really see the impact it will have on our family and also in the way I treat the children at school when I’m back in the classroom.
thanks katie and simone for this its awesome sorry I have to go as bub needs a feed

How does the Montessori approach deal with emotional development?
does anyone know of any UK based Montessori community groups? It seems more popular in the US.
Becky there’s a Montessori family UK Facebook group which is pretty active and a mush group
Great, I will check those out - didn’t know there was a Mush group!
where can I find the group to get the slides you were talking about? thanks
Katie @ Mush
The Mush group for this session is Simone’s early education group
