A Montessori child stepping in. I'm 30. My mom was trained in the Montessori way, taught and then was the Administrator of my k-8th grade Montessori school and I can tell you that it did not always translate at home! :) At school we were encouraged to seek out our own work, but we weren't left to lag behind the rest of the class. I for one hated to read, but was encouraged by my teachers until I could read on my own. It's hard to understand Montessori just by looking at a child's bedroom. I would look at this room and say "Asian inspired" because of my own particular worldview. But looking closer at the low tables and chairs and the mirrors hung at a toddler's eye level, I can see it. I would encourage you to seek out resources in your own area to learn more about Montessori. Visit two schools at least as each school is unique.

Love it! I especially love the way that the red sweater is displayed. Good work, Rachel!
