You are a great mom! You love your kids and you try your best to do the best you can for their education and for their well-being. You know how wonderful and valuable The Montessori Method is, so you research and read about it.

The thing is, it can be daunting and it can be overwhelming, so I wanted to make your life easier. In this post, we share with you 5 decisions to make before teaching Montessori at home. Read on!

Please remember to visit our resources hub for Montessori Curriculum 3-6 activities and homeschool printable lessons ! It is full of wonderful hands-on ideas for you to use at home.

You know how wonderful and valuable The Montessori Method is, so you research and read about it. In this post, we share with you 5 decisions to make before teaching Montessori at home.

5 Decision to make before teaching Montessori at Home

  1. Decide if you will be a Montessori “Puritan,” a Montessori-inspired parent or a Montessori-friendly parent in your homeschool. Each one goes from the strictest to the most lenient. The Montessori Method can be quite strict and that works out best in a Montessori school. It is quite hard to do at home because you have to follow the protocol 100% of the time and have all of the original Montessori materials out at all times, among other things.

It is ok if you need to tone it back and be one of the other two options. Being Montessori-inspired is having some of the original Montessori materials, but some are DIY as well. I fall into this category. For example, we use things like 3-part cards to teach many concepts in our learning, not just the strict Montessori main lessons.

A Montessori-friendly homeschool is using materials that aren’t the main or original Montessori materials, but follow some typical guidelines. Some of these guidelines are: natural wood materials, books with real photographs and that are based on real-life stories instead of cartoon-like character or stories where animals speak.

Here is a great resource to find materials to fit these three categories:

  1. Decide if you will buy all of the Montessori materials, if you’re going to get some and do some DIY or if you will simply supplement your homeschool with some Montessori. Here is a blog post that talks about making some of your own Montesori materials and save some money. It is a lot easier than you think! 10 Tips to Making Inexpensive Montessori Materials & Free DownloadsYou know how wonderful and valuable The Montessori Method is, so you research and read about it. In this post, we share with you 5 decisions to make before teaching Montessori at home.
  2. Decide if you will follow the Montessori Sensitive Periods schedule but keep all of the materials out a all times, if you will cycle through materials that apply to your child’s sensitive periods or if you will randomly put out works in your space and let your child roam and learn at will. 

In this post, you will be able to download a very important part of this free Montessori curriculum. I highly recommend that you follow the sensitive periods. You will find it helpful because children are already predisposed to learning these things during these times. Here are some more essential materials that you will love when it comes to know how to do Montessori at home.

  1. Decide if you will do Montessori exclusively, if you will take another curriculum and make it Montessori as much as possible or if you will do some Montessori, but the bulk of your homeschool is another curriculum. This is what we do and you know what? That is totally ok! We incorporate Montessori into all of our subjects in one way or another, but we don’t use Montessori exclusively. You can GO HERE to see what we do and hopefully, you will find inspiration.

 

  1. Decide if you will do Montessori from birth as a lifestyle, if you will only do ages 3-6 or if you will do it as you can without specific age ranges in mind. Even though I was Montessori trained and love the method, I didn’t start my babies on the Montessori Method. There are ways to keep babies and certain protocols and activities; my husband and I decided not to go with it since it was our first baby and my training was in ages 3-6, not infants.

Honestly, I was the typical mom that felt unsure and nervous about doing a bad job. But there are so many great resources out there to learn how to raise babies the Montessori way. I started when my oldest was 12 months old, so it was still early. By then I had gotten more time to study and learn about Montessori for younger kids. Here are some of the resources I used:

You know how wonderful and valuable The Montessori Method is, so you research and read about it. In this post, we share with you 5 decisions to make before teaching Montessori at home.
