Peek of the Week – Sept 21 to 25

Hello Tulips’ families 🙂

I would like to thank you each one of you for engaging, serving, giving and loving our community! It truly means a lot when our partnership is that good! I appreciate you!

Thank you! Merci! Gracias! Muito obrigada! 🙂

This week’s highlight was The Kids Cafe. You were able to observe a bit of what an uninterrupted work cycle looks like and how children are orienting themselves in our classroom. during the Q&A, the Mattsons and The Butlers had great questions and I shared a bit how you can bring Montessori to your home!

  • remember that is more about how we prepare our spirit to respond and guide the children! We can’t pour from an empty cup.
  • make your space / home more Montessori by having simple furniture that makes things accessible to your child. Ex: small basket with clothes for the week so that your child can choose from it; a Montessori tower in the kitchen so that your child can be involved in cooking tasks (eventually she will prepare her own snacks); potty chair in the bathroom, a few books about using the toilet. ; a child height mirror and a brush /comb in a basket to practice self care; you can also add a tissue box a and small trash can for them to start practicing blowing their noses.
  • make play area / toys simple; less is more: allow room and time for boredom (then comes creativity!), keep a reasonable amount of toys available and work on rotation.
  • book recommendation: The Montessori Toddler by Simone Davies and A Delicate Task by Catherine Mctamaney

Hope everyone has a wonderful week,
