About the book

The Montessori Child picks up where the bestselling series of The Montessori Baby and The Montessori Toddler leaves off. This is an everything-you-need-to-know guide to raising your school-aged child (from 3–12 years old, with a bonus chapter for the teen years) in the Montessori way.

The book will guide parents and caregivers in using the principles of Montessori to raise their school-aged children in ways that assist their development and foster a respectful relationship between parent and child and world. When children are given independence, the tools to succeed, and the encouragement to build on their abilities, it’s amazing what they can achieve.

We will give your guidance how to encourage your child’s innate curiosity and independence while creating a family life with more connection, collaboration and joy. Including how to:

  • Be your child’s guide while creating the space they need to develop independently
  • Support your child’s individual development as well as how they contribute to and become part of society
  • Prepare your home to be welcoming spaces to explore, encourage independence, and help your child be part of the family
  • Create Montessori activities that follow our child’s unique interests, timeline and way of learning
  • Foster grace and courtesy to help your child learn how to respect others and respond to common situations, positive and negative
  • Show up for your child and discover the joy of seeing the world through their eyes
  • And answer all the difficult questions that come up when raising children

The book includes dozens of hands-on activities to help foster your child’s love of numbers and literacy, art and science, and ones that encourage community-building, social awareness, and connection with the natural world.

The Montessori Child offers a powerful alternative for parents who feel that family life has gotten too complicated by showing families how to make more intentional choices for your family, how to better understand the needs of your children, and support them as they develop their unique potential.
