Montessori from the Start

Are you looking to implement Montessori theory from the start with your little one? Are you new to Montessori?  Are you not sure where to begin, which toys to buy, or how to set up your home to optimize learning and play? Join Montessori parent educator, Sarah Moudry, for this online course for pre-mobile (birth to crawling) babies and their adults. This class is a combination of pre-recorded and live classes, offering one of each every week.

On Monday we will send you a link to your new lesson with an action step to prepare for our live class on Thursday. In our live class you will meet with Sarah Moudry and the other families in the class. Sarah will expand on the weekly topic, share tips for implementing the theory at home, and answer all your Montessori parenting questions.

During this eight-week course you will build your own Montessori Baby Book full of theory, milestones, worksheets, activities and observations; sure to be a treasure. Follow along in your course workbook as we document the milestones that matter, and ask the questions that make a difference in your child’s development.

Material Making

Like most Montessori teachers, you probably spend a lot of time thinking about your environment. You understand the importance of the look, feel, and practicality of this space. However, do you feel like you have ideas and goals for your prepared environment that you just can’t actualize? Have you struggled with color-coding? Keeping the environment simple yet unique? or making packets, envelopes, and trays that fit properly and look great?

This workshop is for teachers and parents working with children birth to six years in schools or at home. You will learn new techniques to create beautiful materials and actualize your prepared environment whether you work in a school or home environment.

  • Weekly access to new lessons, tutorials, and follow-along-DIY projects.
  • Loads of patterns, instructions, and supply lists
  • Tips to keep your classroom budget friendly.

12 hours of professional development. Certificate awarded after course completion.

“The teacher’s first duty is to watch over the environment, and this takes precedence over all the rest.  Its influence is indirect, but unless it is well done there will be no effective and permanent results of any kind; physical, intellectual or spiritual.”

— Dr. Maria Montessori
