Sylvia interviews Aubrey and David Hargis with the Guide to Montessori Homeschooling

(Recorded video)

Montessori Homeschooling is vastly different from traditional homeschooling and from Montessori at home. In this video, we are taking a deep dive into what Montessori Homeschooling can provide for the child, how it differs from Montessori at Home, and realistic expectations for adult taking on this beautiful and science based pedagogy.

Principles Close to our Heart

Written by the founder of Guide & Grow, Ms. Sylvia Arotin, the downloadable ‘Principles Close to Our Heart’ poster was crafted to serve as a daily affirmation for every home around the world.

Based on the essence of Montessori, it brings the most important principles back into our hearts and homes. Trusting in the child being capable and confident is the start of 10 guiding principles concluding with Maria Montessori’s quote “The child is both a hope and promise for mankind” to become part of your daily rhythm.

It’s carefully crafted and designed with love & intention. Sign up to download this poster.
