“When I first met Jeanne-Marie I knew nothing about the montessori methods. We were fortunate to have her as my son’s first Montessori Primary guide for his 3-6 years. After learning a bit about Montessori while my son attended the toddler environment, we really saw its benefits when he entered the primary environment with Jeanne-Marie. Her temperament was perfect–stern when needed but always encouraging and supportive. My son left her classroom with the best attitude I could hope for in a child. She really fostered his desire to learn and to this day never dislikes school, even when he is facing a challenge. He knows how to behave in a group, is super helpful with all practical life in our home and has great self-esteem. I really credit Jeanne-Marie with giving him (my son) his desire to learn and laying the foundation for his overall social behavior! He is an excellent role model for his three younger sisters.” – Dana Gabriel, mother of four
“Honestly, the best way I’ve spent two hours in a long time! This is full of easy yet wonderful ways to enhance your child’s experiences in their own home. And you don’t have to run out and buy a ton of specialized resources or toys; most of the items are already in your house. I came away from this workshop totally inspired to refocus DD’s home activities.
This class is awesome!!!! If you haven’t taken one yet, please consider it!! It completely changed some of the ways we parent and interact with our DD and has made so much “click” for us. You won’t regret it!!!! Or send DH so he can learn everything you’ve been trying to tell him but he needs to hear from a stranger/expert before he’ll believe it!” – Dalal Daisy Dweik
“We quickly implemented Jeanne-Marie’s advice and not only did the tantrums cease, but the woman in line in front of us turned and said ‘I am a Kindergarten teacher and what you just did was fabulous! Parents don’t know how to discipline anymore and that was wonderful to see!’ ” – Lili Gould
