On this week’s podcast we discuss Maria Montessori and the simple, inexpensive ways in which you can begin implementing her ideas straight away. It is a lot easier than you might think, and most of it is common sense to those who spend time getting to know their children and be in tune with their development.We also discuss the mind-explosive clash of our attempt to juggle all of the good bits from all of the resources we use and how this reached a crescendo. If you’re struggling then this podcast will help you re-find your feet.
You’ll find lots of tips/ideas and resources right here so have a look through older episodes too. As always, do get in contact. We love hearing from you. 🙂 Links:
