10 Books for Prospective & Current Families

Here at MCS, we believe that the Montessori philosophy does not end when the child leaves the classroom. It continues forward into the child’s homelife and becomes a lifestyle for whole education and learning. Here are a few great reads to guide you into the Montessori journey and help you gain a better understanding of the Montessori philosophy and implementing Montessori at home.
