The Montessori Toddler
A Parent's Guide to Raising a Curious and Responsible Human Being
Turn your home into a Montessori home—and become a more mindful, attentive, and easygoing parent.
It's time to change the way we see toddlers. Using the principles developed by the educator Dr. Maria Montessori, Simone Davies shows how to turn life with a "terrible two" into a mutually rich and rewarding time of curiosity, learning, respect, and discovery.
With hundreds of practical ideas for every aspect of living with a toddler, here are five principles for feeding your child's natural curiosity, from "Trust in the child" to "Fostering a sense of wonder." Step-by-step ways to cultivate daily routines with ease, like brushing teeth, toilet-training, dealing with siblings, losing the pacifier. Plus learn how to:
  • Stay composed when your toddler is not and set limits with love and respect—without resorting to bribes or punishment
  • Set up your home and get rid of the chaos
  • Create Montessori activities that are just right for your one-to-three-year-old
  • Raise an inquisitive learner who loves exploring the world around them
  • See the world through your toddler's eyes and be surprised and delighted by their perspective
  • Be your child's guide—and truly celebrate every stage
  • Turn your home into a Montessori home—and become a more mindful, attentive, and easygoing parent.

      Toddlers are a misunderstood population, according to Montessori teacher and blogger Davies (The Montessori Notebook), who facilitates online workshops for raising responsible, curious children, modeled after the work of Italian physician and educator Maria Montessori (1870-1952). Montessori posited that education, not medicine, was the answer to improving the health of children with emotional and mental disabilities and went on to develop successful schools that have produced graduates such as Jeff Bezos and Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. Davies lays out the basic principles of Montessori child-centered learning, in which students work at their own pace within a prepared environment using hands-on concrete materials. Alongside photographs and Imai's charming illustrations are ideas for setting up a learning-friendly environment and addressing self-care for adults as well as daily care for toddlers. VERDICT With every page chock-full of plans for how to make one's home a haven for a youngster's intellectual and emotional growth, this valuable manual fills a gap on a topic not as frequently addressed in the literature on toddler development.
