Primary Montessori Education: Understanding the Theory

The primary goal of Montessori Print Shop is to make our printable Montessori materials affordable, and accessible to everyone, regardless of their location or level of education. However, to make our printable materials as effective as possible, it’s important we educate the adults (teachers and parents) using them on the basics of Montessori education. We’ve assembled this to give you a greater view of Montessori and how to implement it in your home or classroom.

We strongly believe that all teachers and parents will benefit from learning about Montessori education. Even small changes in your current teaching and parenting methods can greatly impact the children you teach and care for.
