I’m also currently excited that Cameron is starting at a Montessori Playgroup next term. Although it is sad that we will no longer be going to baby rhyme time at the library (he’s outgrown it) or kindergym (cannot afford the playgroup and kindergym).

I find I’m naturally drawn to alternative parenting and education styles. I’m always open to different ideas and happily research things that interest me. The Montessori method is one of the styles that appeals to me. I don’t agree with all that Maria Montessori theorised but I love the environment and I think the hands-on learning suits Cameron.

Really, I’m pretty keen on anything that is child-focussed (attachment parenting, waldorf, etc), gentle, mindful and suits my thoughts that babies/toddlers/children are people too. However, I think that as with everything in life, parenting and/or teaching styles should be individualised and that there is no one-size-fits-all. I’m already finding my roots as an eclectic mama.
