When I first found out I was pregnant with Aliyana, two things filled my Pinterest board – nursery decor and beautiful play spaces filled with every single toy I wish I had when I was little. A little back story, my parents were both immigrants, escaping the war in Vietnam so they came to Canada […]

There is something magical about art – I find a lot of comfort and ease through it. It’s as though time slows down while things are getting created. These beautiful natural dyed eggs aren’t just for Easter, they’re actually a really fun activity to do anytime of year with your little ones (or for yourself). […]

MoMontessori mobiles are different than the traditional mobiles you purchase from the stores. They’re created to promote development at a young age and they are the first materials that a baby will use in a Montessori home.

I should’ve done the getting area a little earlier but I was definitely procrastinating…. nonetheless, it’s finally up and she LOVES it!

I still oftentimes catch myself saying “Good Job” to everything Aliyana and Magali does well-ish. Even when it’s a daily routine or an activity and it ends with something remotely good, I hear myself shouting good job across the hall. “Good Job, you put on your shoes! Good job, you put on your coat! Good […]

My own Montessori journey started 3 years ago when I entered my first Montessori classroom when Aliyana was 6 months old. I have to admit that the beautiful prepared environment captivated me first.

The first time I attended the infant class (when she was 6 months old) I saw a little 2-year-old boy set the table and […]

I remember when I walked into a Montessori classroom for the first time, I was immediately drawn to the beautifully arranged toys and furniture. I must admit, it was very superficial at the beginning but as I read more about this method of teaching, the more I fell in love with it. I really wanted […]

Recently, I’ve been talking more and more about Montessori at home and how I’m striving to create a calming play space for Aliyana that reflects her Montessori classroom. I noticed a huge shift in development when I enrolled her once a week into the Montessori program when she was only 11 months old. Growing up, […]
