When I consider the impact Montessori has had on my life, I think about how my one and half year old daughter waits until her daddy has taken his last bite of an apple so she can throw it in the compost bin. How she gets spoons and bowls in the morning for her and her sister to eat breakfast. How she gathers everyone’s shoes at the front door so we can head out for the day, and how her older sister contemplated for 5 minutes whether to play or clean toilets before heading to bed. I think of all these daily occurrences, and I cannot help but smile and think how fortunate I was to understand and implement the Montessori method with my daughters from the day they were born.

I believe that the Montessori Method has helped make my wonderful daughters who they are today. They are self-confident, caring, lovable, independent, and helpful individuals.
