Understanding Montessori education as a parent — and applying some of it in the home — is not always so simple. In this episode, we speak with Erin and Andrew Ranallo about their experimental journey from basically zero knowledge about Montessori, to effectively using Montessori ideas and practices with their own children, Steggie (age 4) and Elon (18 months).
In this episode, we have a discussion with Berenice Saint-Saens, a Montessori educator who works with children from birth to 3 years, in both the classroom and the home.
In our first episode, we have a brief intro about the podcast and then jump right into a conversation about Montessori with Alessandra Aristimuño, a teacher who works at the Montessori Primary level, i.e. in a mixed-ages classroom with children ~3 to 6 years old.
