Midtown Montessori School

Offering children in Memphis ages 3-12 years old an authentic Montessori education centered on their development. Peace education, collaboration and community are our cornerstones.

Our greatest goal is that the children of our community go into the world knowing that we are all responsible for one another's welfare, for the stewardship of all that surrounds us and with the wisdom that we are each tasked with the important work of creating a world that is more peaceful than we found it.

Montessori Children Often Turn Into Happy Adults 01/06/2022

Montessori Children Often Turn Into Happy Adults

"The researchers suggest that a Montessori curriculum boosts childhood and adult well-being by focusing on activities that promote self-determination (children in Montessori classrooms choose their own work most of the time and feel like they are in charge of their own educations), meaningful activities (children only take part in activities for which the underlying reasons are clear), and social stability and cohesion (classrooms span three years during which children have the same teacher and peer group)."

Montessori Children Often Turn Into Happy Adults New research highlights the long-term benefits of a Montessori education.

Easing your child back to real life after the holidays (From LRS)

"When the holidays are finally over, as adults, we might feel exhausted, relieved, or as if we just stepped off of a roller-coaster. We can expect that children will experience similar emotions once the holidays have come and gone. As important as it is to manage the transition into the holiday season for an infant, it is important to ease them back into normal life once the holidays have passed."

Easing your child back to real life after the holidays (From LRS) The holidays affect our lives in many different ways. Our schedules change with our children on winter vacation and we are in more contact ...

The Fewer Toys Children Have, The More They Play - Raised Good 12/09/2021

The Fewer Toys Children Have, The More They Play - Raised Good

"When we say no to more toys, we say yes to more important life lessons. We give our children the opportunity to be able to learn to truly value what they have. And we communicate that they don’t need to look to external sources of materialism to bring them temporary happiness or reassurance."

The Fewer Toys Children Have, The More They Play - Raised Good We're lead to be believe that if a little is good, then more is better. But, the irony is when it comes to toys, the fewer kids have the more they play.

How to Teach Kids Manners Without Asking for the 'Magic Word' - Raised Good

"We need to remember that to a young child; adults are big and powerful, and they go along with mindless questions like these not because they’re learning but because they’re fearful. Because they have no choice. But we, as parents, have a choice.We have a choice about how we choose to teach, guide and lead our children."

The Key To Your Child's Heart (7 Ways It Works) - Janet Lansbury

"Acknowledge your child’s feelings and wishes, even if they seem ridiculous, irrational, self-centered or wrong. This is not the same as agreeing, and is definitely not indulgent or allowing an undesirable behavior."

The Key To Your Child's Heart (7 Ways It Works) - Janet Lansbury Write this word on your hand. It’s a magical way to connect with a child of any age, can ease tears and tantrums and even prevent them. It’s a simple but surprisingly challenging thing to do, particularly tough to remember in the heat the moment… Acknowledge. Before you tell your child that it...

The Art of Negotiation, or Why You Shouldn't Argue with a Three-year-old 11/05/2021

The Art of Negotiation, or Why You Shouldn't Argue with a Three-year-old

"When we give our children direct instructions and then negotiate with them to different outcomes, we devalue the difference between an instruction and a request. Take the time to reflect on which household rules you want to maintain as nonnegotiable rules and which you want to have your children's input to inform. Then, stick with those limits."

The Art of Negotiation, or Why You Shouldn't Argue with a Three-year-old “We’ll read one book before bedtime,” you tell your child. “Four.” “Two.” “Three.” “OK. Three. But that’s all.” Of our children’s many intrinsic gifts, the art of negotiation is often the most universal. Understanding us as intimately as we understand them, our children kno...
