Montessori Mother is a private Montessori classroom and centre for family learning. Launched in 2017 as “Montessori Mother: Berlin’s pop-up Montessori classroom,” it has provided weekly playgroups for children from 0-3 years old and Montessori home environment consultations.
The new location will include a beautiful Montessori Infant and Toddler Community, a parent coworking space, and weekly workshops and seminars supporting Montessori-at-Home.
Montessori Infant Community
Montessori classes and developmental playgroups are offered every day for children ages 2 months to 4 years. In Montessori, this environment is known as an “infant community,” because everything in the space is prepared to support the children’s development of independence, responsibility, concentration, and curiosity. Montessori Mother is dedicated to following the Montessori method and creating a positive educational environment for its students.
There are two areas in the planned space for the newly expanded Montessori Mother — one for parents and one for children. This will allow parents and children to work together in an environment prepared beautifully to fit both of their needs. The coworking area is a quiet space to sit and work or enjoy a complimentary beverage.
