Beyond the Shelf: 10 Things Your Montessori Child Actually Needs!

Ashley Yeh


If you’re a parent, then this one’s for you! You have full permission to forget about your child’s work shelf for a few moments… and instead, we’re going to dig a little deeper to discover the foundation of authentic, effective Montessori parenting—without which, the shelf would be rendered useless anyway. In this lecture, you’ll learn about ten things your child actually needs from you (that aren’t toys!), so that you can spend less time worrying about shelf rotations and more time finding the joy of parenthood.



Ashley Yeh, M.Ed. is a certified Montessori guide for infants and toddlers, a Positive Discipline Parent Educator, and spent several years working as an educator in public classrooms. She has a deep passion and respect for the Montessori approach, having raised her own two children using Montessori principles from infancy. Ashley has inspired thousands of families around the world to bring Montessori into their homes via her YouTube channel, articles, and online courses. She also wrote a book called, “The Montessori Home: Create a Space for Your Child to Thrive”, which is available at and with most major book retailers.
