How to do Montessori in the time of corona?

By Madlena Ulrich and Carla Foster, lecturers in Further Education in Montessori Pedagogy at the University of South-Eastern Norway. These days, as Montessori Children´s Houses and Elementary schools around the country are re-opening, many people are wondering how to maintain the basic principles of Montessori pedagogy while at the same time following the guidelines for...

Remember: This is not about you.

In times of crisis like this, it is not unusual for a Head of School to be the recipient of anger and criticism.  I imagine that many Heads of School are presently receiving remarks and critiques and challenges that seem unhelpful and even hurtful or unfair. I’m reminded of a moment in my career when I was in such...

Regeneration and Hope

  As many others have said, we are living in unprecedented times. Many of us are grieving the loss of connection with those we love and care about. We are grieving the loss of many aspects of emotional and physical safety and grappling with uncertainty. Some are acknowledging the inequities in society – not all...

Leading in a Time of Crisis

To Our Beloved Montessori Community: During these difficult times of world-wide pandemic, it is normal and “okay” to be experiencing many emotions and reactions.

Practical Life in this time, in this place

The Beginning of my Montessori Journey in Bilingualism

Like many Montessorians around the world, it was motherhood that led me to discover María Montessori, her theories of human development, curriculum and pedagogical practices. I was immediately impressed by the common sense character of her insights and conclusions. It often takes a true genius to identify what lies hidden behind “accepted wisdom” and the habits...
