Montessori is becoming increasingly popular as people recognise the limitations of traditional education. It’s also well-reported that creative successes like Amazon’s Jeff Bezos and Wikipedia’s Jimmy Wales attended Montessori school. And Google’s Larry Page and Sergey Brin credit their success to having attended a Montessori school:
They don’t credit their success to drive or brains. They say it was nursery school…We both went to Montessori school and I think that it was part of that training of not following rules and orders and being self-motivated and questioning what’s going on in the world. Doing things a little bit differently. (Larry Page)” – ABC television report

Interesting blogs about the Montessori approach:
I hope this has been helpful with where to start with Montessori at home. I can’t wait to see more and more people incorporate Montessori principles in home — I find it such a natural, simple and back-to-basics approach to raising children.
I hope you do too.
