1, 2, 3 Montessori

What is Montessori Really?

Check out this great blog post by John Bowman, author of the book, "Montessori At Home." His post examines the idea that, "there are many approaches to helping young children learn that we tend to consider distinct and separate. Waldorf, Reggio, and Traditional programs each have their adherents." I love his post because it gets to the heart of what is important about Montessori leaning and teaching. That it is our job to follow the child and help the child lead. No matter if in order to stay true to following the child, you become less Montessori "looking" and more "Waldorf," or "traditional," or "Reggio." The importance really isn't in the name at all.
