Lately I've been thinking about preschools. I know it's a bit early because my daughter isn't even crawling, but it's never too early to start, right? The Montessori Method is a style of teaching that respects each child as a person and strives to understand, teach, and motivate the child to be a positive member of a the community and develop his or her gifts. Reading the literature on the Montessori Method has just been so fascinating to me. They focus on the way the child develops and sees the world, which is completely different than the way an adult would see it. The Montessori Method helps me try to understand my child, and sometimes a bit of perspective gives me a few more minutes of patience when I think my well is dry.
