“My daughters are enrolled in a Montessori school. In March 2020, when we all had to stay home due to the pandemic, I had a feeling of panic because I went through the traditional schooling, not Montessori. I did not know how to guide and teach them the Montessori way.
Luckily, I found your website through my relentless internet searches and I felt that it was a godsend, once I found it. I was not sure if it were a going to work for us, therefore I only enrolled for two courses (Language and Math) for a month’s period. My kids absolutely loved it. They are able to continue with their curriculum flawlessly. I am so elated about Montessori Library that I subscribed for the full access bundle. It is by far the best thing I have done for their education during the pandemic.
I intend to remain a faithful subscriber even when they will resume with their schooling because it allows me to understand the way they are thought and provide support when they need it. I cannot express my gratitude to Montessori library and the wonderful staff who is always courteous and helpful when I had any questions.”
Teachers and support staff can use the new, free resources for professional development and to find ideas for supporting the children and families they serve in the subscription Free Teacher Resources.
