You’ve all been asking for it, and I’m proud to present my new Montessori Homeschool Preschool E-Course!!!
This Montessori Homeschool Preschool E-Course combines my unique experience as both a Montessori classroom teacher AND a homeschooling parent to help other parents learn about Montessori philosophy and how to set up and run a Montessori Homeschool Preschool for their own children. This course will take you step-by-step through the entire process — from Montessori philosophy points to keep in mind, to setting up the learning environment, to lesson prep and the order in which to present them, to sample work trays in each section for ages 2, 3, and 4/5, to how to create your own unit studies and Montessori-materials [as well as where you can find them available for purchase], to creating your daily classroom rhythm, and all the way through to what to do when it all goes wrong!
Here’s the entire class curriculum:
I’ve created this course to be applicable to families with a wide range of budgets and space available for homeschooling and with modifications that can be made when you have children of varying ages. In order to keep this Montessori Homeschool Preschool E-Course affordable for ALL families, I have not included detailed lesson instructions — but I do provide information on how to find free Montessori lesson instructions as well as where to purchase if you have room for that in your budget. This course is ideal for families with children between the ages of 1.5 and 5, although there are materials listed for children as old as 6.
The Montessori Homeschool Preschool E-Course is composed of written instruction supplemented with videos and photographs. Videos included within the course contain information on how to complete and analyze an observation to help prepare your environment to meet the needs expressed by your child, the key principles found in Montessori materials and how to set them up on work trays, a sample Montessori homeschool preschool room layout, a time lapse of a work cycle in our homeschool preschool, and a demonstration of a three period lesson. This is a take-at-your-own pace course, which means you can begin whenever you’d like and finish in your own time. You will be able to go back and forth within the course contents and you will have lifetime access to everything in the course.

Love the blog, but want to know how you can apply these Montessori concepts to your everyday life? Intimidated by how independent my Montessori kids are, and wondering how you can ever get yours to do the same things? Searching for some way to go further with your children and help them find who they were meant to be?
Look no further, friends. I’ve created a course for that!
Come discover some simple tips for how to be Montessori at home in my Montessori Parenting E-Course!
I’m so excited to share everything I’ve learned through my AMS training as well as trial and error as a Montessori parent! This is a take-at-your-own-pace course — start when you’re ready, finish when you have time, and go back to it as often as you like! And guess what, folks? This is Montessori. That means there are NO TESTS!!!
Join us as we dive into the major concepts of Montessori education before taking a tour of your home to see what simple changes you can make to follow your child! We will also be getting into the dirty stuff — DISCIPLINE, and how to discipline your child in a way that makes sense and teaches lifelong lessons.
Students will also gain access to a private, invitation-only Facebook group where you can share your progress and ask more specific questions about your own home environment! I will be popping in frequently to chat and be your own personal Montessori parenting consultant.
This is NOT a homeschooling curriculum. This course teaches a Montessori lifestyle — every moment thereafter will be a natural “homeschooling” process in your child’s daily life.
So join me in this adventure and enroll in my Montessori Parenting E-Course today!
“It is true that we cannot make a genius. We can only give each individual the chance to fulfill his potential possibilities to become an independent, secure, and balanced human being.” ~Maria Montessori

Montessori is not restricted to your indoor spaces — there is a lot that can be done in the great outdoors! Just as in your indoor spaces, you can prepare your outside environment by creating what I call “yes” spaces. These are spaces that your children are allowed — actually, encouraged— to explore freely.
When you’re considering how to prepare your outdoor environment with “yes” spaces, there are 6 main things to keep in mind:
- Opportunities for taking part in the care of the environment.
- Opportunities for hands-on, child-led learning.
- Opportunities for gross motor movement.
- Opportunities for practicing fine motor practical life skills.
- Opportunities for child-led imaginative play.
- Opportunities for getting creative.
The possibilities for providing for those opportunities are endless and vary greatly based on the outdoor spaces available to you. Some of you have large yards attached to your property that make preparing your environment simply a matter of deciding what to put where. Others of you live in apartments without dedicated outdoor space, so you’ll have to get a bit more creative and bring these principles with you to public parks or shared outdoor spaces.
As with all things Montessori, having the right mindset is more important than having the “best” materials.
The Prepared Environment for Outdoor Spaces: Montessori-Inspired Ideas for Your Backyard is a simple guide with ideas for providing those opportunities as well as questions to ask yourself about your own outdoor space that can help you prepare your environment to create those “yes” spaces. This mini course is ideal for the parents of children ages 1.5 to 6 years old.
