Being a parent was never supposed to be a one person job. 

We need support, we need to be supported by those who have been through the same challenges.

We are not born parents. We cannot rely on instincts alone.

Nowadays, we have so much information about the child’s development that we ought to our children to inform ourselves.

We can learn from others and support each other.

I am obviously passionate about sharing my Montessori knowledge. I also love to connect with other parents and with other Montessori teachers and parenting experts.

This is why I am so pleased to bring you the Montessori Parenting Online conference!

This is a FREE week of talks with amazing guests from all around the world!

It will be hosted within a private FB group from the 21st to the 27th of January. I will share the videos on Youtube if you are not on FB.

Jeanne-Marie Paynel from Voila Montessori

A parent of two children, Jeanne-Marie launched Voila Montessori in response to the overwhelming demand from parents for advice and guidance for raising children in a gentle, peaceful, and supportive environment that’s conducive to their full development – psychological, academic, artistic, spiritual, physical, cultural, etc.

Families who work with Jeanne-Marie reap the benefit of her two AMI Montessori certifications covering childhood development from birth through age 6, extensive classroom experience, and first-hand parenting knowledge. Jeanne-Marie describes herself as “genuine, passionate, and straightforward”. She’s honest and direct because she realizes that clear and precise information is what will help parents cut through the overwhelming amount of advice that engulfs them.

Her mission is to help parents appreciate the true importance of their role – not as servants or teachers, but as supporters and guides of their children’s natural development.

“Montessori is not the only truth,” Jeanne-Marie explains. “but I do believe in the Montessori philosophy as a way of life and know from first-hand experience that it can work for any family that takes the time to understand it and apply it.”

Sarah Adams from the Prepared environment

The Montessori philosophy has played a major role in my life.  My parents enrolled me in Montessori preschool at age 3 and I continued in a Montessori school until Grade 7. I completed my AMS Elementary I-II Credentials (2007) and a Montessori Approach to Education Post Baccalaureate Diploma at SFU (2008).  I have been teaching in a Public Montessori school since 2006.

When I had my daughter in 2016, I was so excited to use what I learned about Montessori and implement that philosophy in our home.  I wasn’t expecting such a learning curve.  I felt so overwhelmed.  There were so many things to think about and all I could really focus on was trying to keep her alive and getting sleep whenever I could!  I just wanted answers and quickly.  Whenever I thought I had a handle on things, she changed.  I wished there was some magical fairy godmother who could come and help (and who would help me to do it myself…that’s the Montessori child in me).

After I got out of the “newborn baby fog,” I started researching and making a plan.  I was determined to help others not feel the way I did.  I took a few courses geared towards younger children and completed a professional organization course.  I am still learning along the way, but feel so much more prepared.

I want to help other parents by eliminating some of the guess work giving guidance on how to prepare the home so it is a space that is beautiful, organized and supports the developmental needs of each child…this is what Montessori called the “Prepared Environment.”

Eloise Rickman from Friday be Mighty

Eloise has a background in anthropology and politics. She changed her career after the birth of her child, Frida. She trained and worked as an antenatal teacher and doula. She is now a peaceful parenting coach while home educating her 3 years old daughter in London.

She believes that peaceful parenting can be a truly radical act. More than that, she believes that changing the way we raise children is our only hope if we want a fairer and more just society. The way in which we raise our children can have a profound positive impact on our families, our communities, and our world. Peaceful parenting may be a quiet revolution, taking place in playgrounds rather than protests, but she has no doubt that it is a powerful one.
