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.

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 😂
Alison

what age is best to start. also how expensive can it be ?
Sofia
54:53
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.
Alison
56:44
@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
Alison

right*

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
59:42
@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!
Joanne Fowler
01:02:08
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
Catriona
01:02:42
thanks Kierrah. that’s a good recommendation. I’ll take a look at Muji

Rich & Jose
01:06:03
Really good to see this!
Lucy Lobo
01:06:30
how do you teach them? is it lots of modelling until they master the skill?
Gemma
01:09:09
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?
Kierrah George
01:09:47
OMG showing them wiping their nose in the mirror is was a game changer when my daughter was constantly sick after starting childcare
Vaishali
01:11:45

how much do you integrate nature and outdoors in Montessori (and how) compared to Steiner and Woldorf?
Emily
01:15:07
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
Sandrine K
01:15:43
Any book recommendation about Montessori pease?
Alison
01:16:28
would you recommend memory games ?
Alison
01:17:13
sorry I mean would you recommend doing memory games for montisorri
Emily
01:17:35
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
01:21:55
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.
