Montessori Playgroups

A place where children and adults play and learn together

The purpose at Ananda is to bring awareness of Montessori philosophy, and to find support in a community of parents, children, and families.

In each Montessori Playgroup class, I offer guidance as you learn to observe and respect the natural development of your child. You also interact and practice Montessori as a living process in an environment prepared with both you and your child in mind.

In each Playgroup class, I introduce activities to your child and others to help in developing social skills, concentration, communication, and a sense of belonging to a group, while modeling ways for you to use skills at home.

All parents gather monthly in person at Ananda (or virtually) for a discussion group, facilitated by me. These sessions feature an overview and discussion of topics pertaining to infant/child development and parenting, and serve as a time for you to share and exchange information with one another, and to form friendships and connections.

Discussion topics may include:

  • Observation
  • Symbiotic Period of the Infant
  • Preparing the Home Environment
  • Development of Language
  • Development of Movement
  • Development of Language
  • Breastfeeding, Weaning, and Nutrition
  • Diapers and Toilet Learning
  • Sleep
  • Positive Parenting
  • Montessori Theories
