Play is a universal need – even for adults. While many of us know how important it is for our children to play, we may forget to make time for play in our own lives. As Brian Sutton-Smith said, “The opposite of play is not work, it is depression.”
Maria Montessori, the founder of the Montessori curriculum and an expert on early childhood development, talked a lot about love, and Valentine’s Day is a perfect occasion to honor all the ways in which we show it to our children.
The Montessori method informs the design behind our entire curriculum at Monti Kids. For families unfamiliar, Montessori can seem abstract. But in reality, it is the opposite. Montessori is an educational approach that has been used for over 100 years and is trusted by over 20,000 schools around the world.
