The Importance of Using Montessori at Home

Mother and young daughter work on crafts.

For more than a century, the ideas of Maria Montessori have been helping children grow and develop into thoughtful, creative people who are fully engaged with the world around them. The return on your investment in Montessori will be enhanced if there is a consistency between your home and your child’s classroom.

“From conception to age 4, the individual develops 50 percent of his mature intelligence; from ages 4 to 8 he develops another 30 percent…This would suggest the very rapid growth of intelligence in the early years and the possible great influence of the early environment on this development,” said Dr. Benjamin S. Bloom of the University of Chicago.

Bringing The Montessori Philosophy into your home does not mean putting Montessori materials in your living room, it means taking the Montessori perspective. With this perspective your attitudes, your pace, your expectations and the limits you establish for your child will be in keeping with the principles that Maria Montessori developed for her teachers-principles that came from her lifelong observation of the nature of children.

To gain this perspective you can read Montessori’s writings attend parent information nights at your child’s school or join a Montessori discussion group.

There are more than 8,000 Montessori Schools in the United States and more each year as parents learn about The Montessori Philosophy.

The Importance of Playtime for Children


Playtime doesn’t just keep kids away from boredom; it is also an essential element of childhood development. In this article, you can learn about why playtime is essential to your child’s overall well-being.

Social Development

One of the biggest things that children learn from unstructured playtime is how to interact socially. They learn to pick up on social cues, learn norms, and begin to understand how to build relationships. Children’s social development can be adversely affected if they aren’t given enough time to play with others.

Emotional Well-Being

In our current day and age, our lives are often too hurried and filled with anxiety. While children may seem too young for the pressures of modern society, they weigh on them equally as heavily—especially when children are not given the opportunity to play. Carefree playtime allows them to de-stress and stop worrying about concerns they may have in other areas of life. Playtime has been connected to keeping young children depression-free and much happier.

Healthy Habits

Playtime encourages children to get up and run around. Research has shown that children who are given adequate amounts of playtime tend to be more fit and in better overall health.  The mindset that getting up and being active is an essential part of daily life is carried into later life, ensuring health throughout teenage and adult years.

There are many reasons to assure your child has access to plenty of playtime. The emotional and physical health of children is tied directly to academic performance, and both of these factors are enhanced from playtime.

One way to assure that your child is given the opportunity to participate in playtime is by enrolling them in a Montessori School.
