How to Create a Montessori Environment in Your Own Home
“Our goal is to provide a free resource for parents who want to extend their children’s Montessori education into their homes,” said Edith Gruener, Principal of Montessori American School (http://www.MontessoriAmerican.com)
How to Create a Montessori Environment in Your Own Home begins by discussing the importance of providing consistency between a child’s home and classroom. It then outlines various ways that the principles developed for teachers by Maria Montessori can also be used by parents. Some of the suggestions detailed in the eBook include:
* Simple ways to transform a home into a Montessori environment

In fact, we feel that this book is such a great tool, we are encouraging each of our parents who have children enrolled in our program, to download a copy.”
