Sleep & Montessori: Learn How Sleep Develops in the Early Years and How to Get Everyone the Sleep They Need to Thrive!

Mariana Bissonnette


In this workshop, expecting families and those with children 0-3 will gain a practical understanding of the important developments of sleep in the first three years, the developmental interruptions in sleep, and learn how to apply the Montessori method to answer your own sleep questions that fit your child and your family. We will also talk about the Montessori floor bed and how to use it in infancy through toddlerhood. This is a practical and engaging workshop that focuses on using what you already have to create developmentally-aligned spaces & routines for sleep in the first three years.
