How to work on your Children’s Montessori Education Over The Summer At Home

What can we do at home over the summer to help with our Children’s Montessori Education?

We have many parents ask what they can do at home to help with their children’s Montessori Education. While we don’t send a lot of homework for the summer, reading is something we hope the kids are doing everyday to build their skills. Montessori children have a great reputation for being self-motivated, but we know that each child is different and has their own strengths.

New research indicates that children much prefer to read books and flip the pages than use e-readers.

We often suggest that in addition to reading every evening, we hope our students have a chance to relax and unwind so that they can return to school energized.

Spending time with parents helping around the house can provide some of the most valuable tools that your child will need as they enter adulthood.

Cooking, cleaning, building and organizing are all tasks that teach practical life skills and reinforce a sense of order and a deeper ability to concentrate.
