Montessori parenting is different…

When you embed principles of Dr. Maria Montessori into parenting, you realize that it is different than Montessori education or Montessori homeschooling.

Co-Founder of the Rock and Roll Daycare, Zaure Vuk, shares about her journey:

“As Montessori Mama, for over a decade I have been doing both: integrating principles of Dr. Maria Montessori into parenting style, which in turn has become a journey of self-transformation. 🧘🏻‍♀️

And I also homeschooled my four children in the Montessori style, either by creating a full classroom with shelves and Montessori materials, or by taking two suitcases with Montessori materials to Europe, and we did Montessori in the cafes and coffee shops of Spain, Portugal, UK…

What I am finding is that you don’t have to homeschool your children to be a Montessori mama. Montessori is above all is a mindset, a lifestyle. It is a way of being.

For me, Montessori has become an all encompassing way of life. Of being a mother, and educator, a yoga teacher and postpartum doula. 🌹🌹🌹

What is Montessori for you and how do you implement it in your life? Write in the comments! 👇

Happy May! We will be sending out Rock and Roll Boxes this week to all Rock and Roll Daycare families!

If you are a part of our community, and if your child is enrolled with us, we hope that this is an amazing resource for you to connect with your children, and create music together 🎻🎻🎻

Because, after all, our daycare is founded by two musicians. Listen to our story in the podcast we did. 🎶

In the Montessori classroom environment is the teacher of the child.

The prepared environment gently “guides” the child through exploration of the materials. Each shelf therefore must be carefully prepared and organized for the child. 💫

Once it’s ready and is attracted to the child, the adult can quietly observe and support the child’s self-education. 🧘🏻‍♀️

This is Montessori approach to early childhood education. ♥️

Caregiving times are powerful moments for children to learn

At Rock and Roll Daycare, whenever we are with babies and young toddlers, we use care taking moments such as changing diaper and feedings as our curriculum. 📚

Narrating of what is going on to an infant is very important for:

💫 feeling that they know what is going

💫 hearing calm voice and eye contact gives them reassurance of safety

💫 in this intimate moments feeling they are being cared for with respect and intention

💫helps develop their language

Remember, their absorbent mind unconsciously takes in every thing from their environment. And the environment includes you! ♥️

Slow movement, gentle touch, speaking with a smile while looking into the baby’s eyes are also wonderful opportunities for moments of mindfulness for you. 🧘🏻‍♀️

Half way through travels around Brazil! 🇧🇷

Children at Rock and Roll Daycare learn about the famous people from the country, their amazing gift and contribution in to the cultural heritage. 🎻 That includes writers, artists, and musicians, of course!

Paulo Coelho de Souza is a Brazilian lyricist and novelist and a member of the Brazilian Academy of Letters since 2002. His novel The Alchemist became an international best-seller and he has published 28 more books since then.

Let’s face it; going back to work after having a baby is not the easiest thing in the world. Even if many of us work from home nowadays, there are still a lot of transitions and adjustments that are necessary to be made. For the whole family. ♥️

Learning to adjust to taking care of this precious new life while still balancing everything else we did in pre-baby days takes strength, rest, and some savvy organizational skills!

At Rock and Roll Daycare, we totally get it.

We started developing an educational support program to bring awareness to the need to have adequate rest, resources, and planning for having a newborn and making that transition back to work.

As we are developing this valuable program to help support and offer new parents resources within our community, we would love to learn more, if we may, about YOUR Postpartum Journey. We have a survey here:

Wednesday Wellness for parents and teachers 🧘🏻‍♀️

Mindfulness can seem very elusive and “too much”, but in reality it can be very practical:

✅ have a 2 minutes check in with yourself throughout the day: how am I feeling? With curiosity and non-attachment find the words that would help you name the feelings

✅ once you have named them, you can claim them. Accept with no judgement or anxiety.

✅ release any thing that doesn’t serve you or any tension you may have noticed.

✅ breath in a new, more relaxed perspective and exhale the old.

This week we are continuing our educational journey through Brazil! 🇧🇷

Other than culture and music focus for learning at Rock and Roll Daycare, we have a Montessori based theme of the month. 📚 We outline each theme in the Rock and Roll Planner

This month the teachers and program specialists are reflecting and having dialogues about the qualities of a Mindful Adult. In Montessori it is called Prepared Adult.

Self preparation greatly empowers our connection with ourselves most of all. Then the deep sense of being mindful enriches and guides our interactions with the communities around us: communities of both children and adults.

If you have a chance today, we invite you together with us reflect on what mindful adult is to you? 📔

In our Curriculum Guide daycare students learn many aspects of country of study. For example, they know what football means in other countries 😉🇧🇷

Many activities incorporate Montessori principles of a three period lesson, which enriches child’s vocabulary. 👍

And they also learn to sing songs in Portuguese 🎻🇧🇷

This type of curriculum gives children a much larger and richer vision of the world 🌎

Rock and Roll Planner is a great tool.
And new version is coming SOON! 🤟

At the Rock And Roll Daycare we use these Planners to support the key components of the Montessori-based early childhood education approach.

We have designed them so that each educator has a consistent system and a tool in place for regular observations and reflections. Without these two elements integrating Montessori-based principles, on which we developed our Rock and Roll Method, will not be effective in the classroom. 📚

The Planner also supports the 6 month cycle and allows our educators to review again and again the foundational aspects of the methodology at our centers. 💫

Then they are empowered to implement them in the classroom on a day to day basis.

We will share about the 6-months cycle in our next post! 🎶

What has been helpful to you in learning Montessori method? Please share! 👇

Rock and Roll Box comes home to each student so that the whole family can enjoy signing songs and reading stories together 💫🎻

When we listen to or play music, we know that it makes us feel good. 🎶

Hearing the beat of your favorite song can put a smile on your face if you’re having a bad day or take you back to a favorite memory. 💫💫💫

While music can put children in a good mood as well, it can also do some pretty cool things for their brains and their development. 🎻

Many people don’t realize that music is not only good for the soul but also the mind.🧘🏻‍♀️

Here, at Rock and Roll Daycare, we take music very seriously. Our students have immersive musical experiences and education from day 1.

In fact, the first thing that families whi sign up for our programs in Cambridge, MA or Alexandria, VA, receive Rock and Roll Box-goodies that include music books and a xylophone 🎼

We are opening two new centers this winter: one in Porter Square in Cambridge and one in Alexandria, VA!

Come visit us at the Open House! We look forward to meeting you! 🎷

During November and December, we’re turning the spotlight on South Korean culture.

We love teaching our students about different countries at a young age. This not only educates them about the world but also fosters an early understanding and acceptance of people everywhere. 🌍

We’ll be using our South Korean Heritage Curriculum Guide as our map to explore all that South Korea has to offer.

Teachers at all of our centers will be using this guide to teach students about the different facets of South Korean culture.

We love to expand our Rock and Roll family in every way we can. 🎼
