Montessori Practice

in Action

Spend less time learning theory and more time unleashing your child's potential with practice!

As parents, we understand that every day can feel like a marathon.

Your to-do list is never-ending, with a job to juggle, a house to run, and children to nurture.
Some days it feels like you're running on empty, while your little ones seem to have an inexhaustible source of energy.
We get it. Parenting is a full-time job, in and of itself.

And then there are the challenges unique to your child.
Maybe they refuse to pick up their toys, throw tantrums too often, or display a scary affinity for screens over books.
Perhaps you've been troubled by their lack of interest in any activities you offer...

The most heart-wrenching part? You want so much for your child - independence, curiosity, a love for learning, strong social skills. You dream of giving them a warm, peaceful home environment that nurtures these qualities, and yet, it feels like a distant, impossible dream amid the chaos of everyday life.

And let's not even get started on the myriad of expensive educational toys and resources that promise the world but don't live up to expectations. Or the beautiful, serene images of Montessori spaces online that seem so desirable, yet unachievable with your budget and space.

Let’s see if any of this sounds like you:

  • You want to learn how to implement Montessori at home but you don’t know where to start. There is just too much information out there.
  • You don’t have time to read a whole book about Montessori philosophy, you need information that is quick and easy to digest. Say, while you’re sipping your second, or third (we don’t judge) coffee of the day, or maybe during that precious naptime.
  • You can’t afford to send your child to a Montessori school. You want to do it at home but can’t afford fancy toys and you don’t have the space for a big Montessori playroom.
  • You’ve read a lot of Montessori jargon that you don’t understand and it just puts you off completely.
  • You feel like your child is ruling the house. You feel like you say no all the time and you don’t like the way you currently have to “punish” your child. You’ve tried some Montessori techniques but they’re not working.
  • You're trying to involve your child in household activities but they don’t want to and then you just feel like a Montessori failure.
  • You’ve tried to practice Montessori in your house but it hasn’t gone to plan and you feel like you need more guidance from real people rather than books or blogs.
  • You’ve been home with your children for the majority of the past two years and now you’re trying to reenter society but your child doesn’t have good social skills and you’re not sure what to do about it.

Trust me, you’re not alone!

There is a huge community of people feeling just like you.

They envision themselves with a peaceful Montessori home but they just can’t connect the dots to actually get there. 

Well, you, my friend, are in the right place.

Welcome to Montessori Practice in Action!

There is a lot to learn. And it can be very overwhelming. When you search online or you read books, you’re making a start. You’re putting the ideas and philosophy into your brain. 

But what’s the point in having all of that knowledge stored up there if you never actually use it. 

How is your child going to benefit from you knowing about Grace and Courtesy, 3-Period Lessons, or Logical Consequences if you’re never actually using them?

We get it, life is busy. You should feel proud of yourself for having made a start at gaining the knowledge. You’re doing an amazing thing for your child by learning about Montessori theory. 

We just want you to have the confidence to start using it.

This course is different from the books on your shelf

We don’t just help you to acquire the knowledge, we show you how to use it. 

And it doesn’t take a degree, an entire textbook, or a 12-month course. We know how busy you are. 

We are going to show you how to practice Montessori with your child in bite-sized chunks. So that you might also have time for your fave Netflix show while your baby is napping.

What Are the Benefits of Using Montessori at Home?

If you’re here, you probably know at least a little about Montessori. But let us just take a moment to remind you of why you and your child will benefit from practicing Montessori in your home:


Your child learns how to dress themselves, prepare food, take care of their bodies, take care of their belongings, clean up by themselves…the list goes on…

Joy of Learning

By offering choices and freedom (within limits), your child takes control of their learning. They learn about what interests them and this autonomy creates a lifelong love of learning.

Social Skills

Lessons in Grace and Courtesy and a philosophy of respect between children and adults help your child to develop excellent social skills that will carry them through life.


Working on what interests them and learning at their own pace means children constantly feel successful which boosts their confidence.

Social Justice

Because Montessori is based on being peaceful and accepting of others, children learn to be inclusive. The Montessori curriculum at school includes also learning about and understanding other cultures.

Life skills

Montessori children work collaboratively, think critically, and live independently. They are enthusiastic, confident, and self-directed in their learning. 

By implementing Montessori practice in your home, you will be working towards all of this. 

Let us show you now how we plan to help…

"I just wanted to express my sincere gratitude to Charlotte and the Montessori Parenting team for this wonderful series of videos. Charlotte has a delightful and very mindful approach to education that has particularly resonated with me. I devoured her words as if I was reading a book (in fact I think she should write a book)."

What do you get when you join Montessori practice in action?

20 Video Sessions

We will be together for at least 10 weeks. You will receive an email each week guiding you into important and exciting topics.

Two live Q&A Sessions

If questions come up while you’re absorbing the information and starting your practice at home, just jot them down and bring them with you.

Community support

You’ll also be a part of the member's section and can interact with your fellow Montessorians, as well as being a part of our private Facebook community.

Experienced Lecturer

Charlotte Snyder, the course leader, is a Head of School at Baan Dek Montessori. She will gently guide you through the course and will make you ponder.

How do the videos look like? 

  • Each video gives you all the information you need about a specific topic.
  • It shows you why that specific practice could add value to you and your family and it gives you guidance on how to implement the practice into your home.
  • We will guide you through two videos each week so that you aren’t overwhelmed at once with a whole load of information.
  • Once the videos are released, your access is unlimited, so you can go at your own pace.
  • Just a few of the video topics include: Practice Setting Boundaries, Practice Building Vocabulary, Practice Giving Choices, …and so many more!

Get To Know Charlotte

Charlotte Snyder has been a Montessorian almost her entire life.

As a child, she attended Montessori Elementary School in California. She completed her Primary Montessori training in 2010 at Montessori Northwest and went on to earn a Masters Degree in Education from Loyola University in Maryland. 

Charlotte is now Head of School at The Baan Dek Montessori in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. 

Her passion is in sharing Montessori philosophy and building relationships with families.

But Don’t Just Trust What We Say…

Charlotte has run courses for before and this is what others are saying: 

I believe that almost every year of my tenure as Head of School, I have questioned and wondered whether Montessori is relevant in an ever changing world and now with the exponential nature of the change...can and does Montessori keep up? Charlotte reminded me in every way and every day that Montessori meets the child where they are and to prepare the environment, we must also prepare our personal perspective on that environment- I believe I will refer often to her words, sentiment and content...thank you for sharing your wisdom!
Liza WeekesHead of School
Thank you for such an optimistic, fresh and invigorating outlook on our work in the Montessori classroom. I needed to hear that human development and culture are indeed different things to look at, and while culture has changed, human development hasn’t. I agree with you that the changes we are seeing do not need to be qualified as being good or bad but that it is indeed important to observe and reflect on them. I for one had noticed that for sure there is a lot of management or adult intervention in children’s lives but i had not really paused to reflect deeply on how free play was serving the children, on what skills were built then, and consequently on how the cultural shift impacts young children in the way their developmental needs are expressed and met. Thank you for helping me engage in a deeper reflection regarding the times we are living in and the needs of the children.
