Season 1, Episode 1
Want to really know what it’s like to be a Montessori family? I’ll be talking to my daughter Emma and my son Oliver who went to Montessori school up until 12 years old. And how they found the transition to a “regular” school (spoiler: not so difficult it appears). We talk about what it’s like to be bilingual, things they remember from Montessori school, what it’s like having a Montessori teacher as a parent, and even sex education in the Netherlands.
I’ll also be talking to their Dad, Luke, all about co-parenting, communication, and raising Montessori children.
And sharing what I love about Montessori.
