My Montessori Journey

"Our care of the child should be governed, not by the desire to make him learn things, but by the endeavor always to keep burning within him that light which is called intelligence." - Maria Montessori.

My son Arlo, started attending a local, rural Montessori preschool when he was one year old.  It was really through a lack of other childcare options that he ended up there, but since he started, Montessori has become integral to our home and school life.  

I have become more and more fascinated with the Montessori philosophy, solely because I am loving the way it is shaping my children. Children are naturally inquisitive and by having the willingness and materials on hand to learn alongside our children, we are able to foster a life-long love of learning.

The Montessori method has been gaining momentum globally (especially after a public announcement that the Royal family have introduced their young Prince George to Montessori education) as many families have found the Montessori approach interesting and appealing.  It supports our yearning for a more simple life - free of clutter and chaos.  It reflects the desire of modern parents to raise children from the place of respect and give them the tools necessary to be socially, physically and emotionally capable.

Montessori Shop has been operating since 2007 and I continue to provide parents, caregivers and schools with affordable, quality Montessori materials.  I pride myself on great customer service and add value for my customers in every way I can.
