How did you learn about Montessori?
I learnt about Montessori Education when we were looking for “the best education“ for my daughter, Megha. She was about 2 years old and attended daycare. She was interested in a Kindergarten class there and was able to academically fit in. The director of the preschool asked me to check the Montessori school and we did. My husband and I loved the program and Megha enjoyed going to school. I volunteered at the school in the beginning and worked as an after-school teacher for an year. Then became the primary classroom assistant before taking the Primary training.
