And the journey begins…

After much reading online I’ve decided I really like the Montessori style of education.  I love the hands on learning and the working at the child’s pace.  My experiences as a mother have shown me the benefits of teaching children to do things themselves and to sometimes stand back and let them try without rushing in to “save” them.  I also like the organization and the teaching children to clean up after themselves 🙂  I don’t think I’m a purest when it comes to Montessori (Pumpkin 2 won’t be sleeping on a mattress on the floor), but it’s my basis for teaching and I’ll add in other elements that I like, such as music, art and of course lots of free playtime.  I’m still new to everything and am learning as we go.  This is the beginning of our journey.
