A Montessori Home Tour: Cheryl of @ow. montessori. family
Updated: Apr 13, 2022
This week I was lucky enough to interview Cheryl of @ow.montessori.family Her Instagram account is so peaceful and aesthetically pleasing, I feel calm just scrolling through it. I especially notice how thoughtful and intentional her spaces are...from the reading areas to the nature table. When I asked Cheryl to take part in this tour I was most curious about how her family incorporates balance in their home-with languages, experiences and materials that are provided for her daughter. I hope you enjoy reading the interview and learning more about this beautiful space!
Tell me about yourself...
I was a business development manager of an engineering firm before my first child. Today I am a proud stay at home mom. Since my daughter, Em came along, I have become intrigued in early childhood development and got myself certified as children's yoga teacher. I enjoy travelling and being in nature.
How old is your child?
Em is 26 months old.
When did you first learn about Montessori?
I first learned about Dr Maria Montessori and her pedagogy when a dear friend of mine gifted me the book : The Joyful Child. I was blown away and plunged into reading more about Dr Maria Montessori and her work. I subsequently took up some online courses to further enrich my knowledge. Instagram has also been my daily and constant source of inspiration and motivation.
