Are Your Expectations Affecting Your Montessori Journey?

Sylvia Arotin


Ever feel overwhelmed about implementing Montessori at home? Don’t know where to start? Stressed that you can’t afford it? Worried how the family is going to respond or react to your decision? Will they even support you? Is Montessori social media making you feel like you are not doing enough?

These are all valid and real questions that will be answered in my session! We will dive into some of these really essential topics and how to navigate our expectations around Montessori, including your own, your families and how to adjust these expectations to make the MOST out of your Montessori journey.

  • Learn how to manage and navigate your own expectations
  • Understand how to approach family & caregivers
  • Practical tips moving forward to help you implement Montessori at home
  • The ultimate checklist to make sure you are on track, thriving & have the right support for your Montessori at home journey!

I’m looking forward to seeing you all at my session where we will smash some of those expectations that are holding you back! Not only will this revitalize you on your Montessori journey but it will help your child be the best that they can be.
