Montessori at home: Beyond the classroom


Montessori is an educational approach that has been proven to be effective for encouraging self-directed learning. This article provides tips for how you can incorporate some of the fundamental principles of Montessori into your home.
Montessori homes are designed in a way that encourages children to develop individual skills, rather than to conform to the same curriculum. They’re child-centred, encouraging independence and flexibility, and focused on play as a way of educating. They have the ability to nurture and educate children, making them more likely to learn, retain information, and make educational learning. The Montessori method requires parents to teach in a way that is fun and engaging. That means there are no boring lectures. No boring textbook. No boring tests.

How to incorporate some of the fundamental principles of the Montessori educational model into your home

  • Give children tasks that they love doing and tasks that they are interested in. 
  • Encourage children to use their creativity.
  • Allow children to be independent. 
  • Reward the children for their independence. 
  • Empower your children to make decisions for themselves. 
  • Set clear expectations for your child with respect to their work environment.
  • Establish clear rules and guidelines with respect to your child's work environment.
  • Montessori children are responsible for their own learning. They should not be expected to work for you in the form of homework or study sessions.

Children need independence. Children need autonomy. Children need the opportunity to explore, discover, and become proficient in their special strengths and interests. Children need to be able to make independent decisions. Montessori children are encouraged to use their strengths and weaknesses in order to become proficient in their special strengths and interests.
Our goal in Gioqo is to help parents become more involved in their children’s education by providing products that help them become happier, better learners and more engaged with their toys. Montessori toys are designed to be educational, by encouraging children to become independent and to develop their motor skills. Toys that are fun, that are educational, that have engaging play value, toys that help children to be better learners.
