Toilet Learning the Montessori Way

Neus Carmona


Toilet Learning the Montessori Way is a journey that starts as soon as the child can stand and continues until they are ready. This journey allows the child to interiorize and normalize that going to the bathroom is part of the daily routine. In the Montessori settings and at home, we allow the child to be an active participant in this new learning experience and as parents or guides, we guide the child toward bathroom independence.

During our time together we will talk about the stages of toilet learning. First, we will dig deep into the preparation of the environment, followed by the child’s awareness and how to help them become independent in this journey. Finally, we will reach that independence where your child will be able to go to the bathroom and follow the steps to be successful in underpants.

Neus holds a bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood and Elementary Education and Master’s degree in Early Childhood Education with emphasis in Montessori Education. After graduating, She moved to Italy to complete a Master in Educational Psychology from the Università degli studi di Firenze.  I was drawn to Montessori while living in Italy and I started pursuing my Montessori certifications in the US. I hold Montessori credentials for 0-3, 3-6 and for Parent- Infant and Child.

She has been a Montessori Toddler and Early Childhood Certified Teacher for the past ten year and also a Montessori consultant for different schools in New England. Neus was drawn to the Montessori philosophy because of the hands-on approach to learning and the emphasis on the individual child as well as their responsibilities and independence. She enjoys working with children, and loves watching their eyes light up when they grasp a new concept.

She has recently become a mom of a wonderful girl. She offers 1:1 Infant and toddler parent consultations and workshops. Connect with her through her Instagram page @montessorianbyheart , her website or send her an e-mail at
