I knew very little about the Montessori method of parenting prior to the home visit. Learning about the Montessori method and philosophy was very illuminating. I took away many actionable items such as playroom and bedroom setup for my daughter that we are already implementing.
Through my experiences at the Baby & Me group, watching online tutorials on the Montessori blog, and our first home visit, I’ve gained so much confidence as a mother. I’m thrilled to have the tools and techniques to aid my son in every stage of his development! I’m sure that, using what I’ve learned, my son will be involved, challenged, and happy as he makes his way through his first year of life.
Every home visit leaves us with new ideas. Most of the time, though, it’s a reminder to step back and let our son show us the way. We always end up feeling more confident that we’re doing the right thing and it gives us reinforcement to keep going!
Mariana talked about our baby’s developmental stage and helped us think about how to match our home set-up to best support baby. The information was really accessible and felt useful immediately!
This service has been absolutely invaluable . We all have an idea of how we want to raise our kids, but Mariana gives you the tools to do it from day one. I feel like Adam, myself, and our whole family is just so much better off after taking her program and implementing her suggestions. You are clearly talking to an expert when you’re with Mariana but she is so humble about her wealth of knowledge. She is completely positive in her approach, and does not criticize or judge. Really an amazing experience.
We reached out to Mariana on how to best support our toddler son who has a lot of energy. I was nervous we would have to restrict his behavior, but she helped us understand how to appropriately use his motivations and how give clear and consistent messages that support him and his development.
After the home visit we started letting baby fall asleep on his own. We didn’t realize he was so ready for this!
Mariana was clear & concise and a joy to receive advice from, talking to her made us realize with a few small adjustments, we can truly integrate our baby’s life within our own at home. We would highly recommend a visit from Arc Montessori for any new parents seeking sage advice on their own baby’s development.
This is been one of the most helpful sources of the practical, doable advice.I really like the approach to parenting that you recommend.
This was a great service. I am fully supportive of the Montessori methods and love that they simplify what the baby actually needs. I look forward to more information as she gets older.
