Homeschooling is one of the most challenging, and at the same time, rewarding experiences of my life aside from becoming a parent. To add – choosing to homeschool following Montessori method also turned out to be one of the lonely paths to go. In Australia particularly, Montessori name and method are still surrounded by a great deal of myths and misconceptions. The most positive comment I personally heard from a parent who doesn’t do Montessori is “Oh, isn’t it where Google guys went to school?!” Yes, these are truly inspiring examples of outcomes that Montessori method can bring, you learn to think outside the box and solve problems successfully. But there is so much more that hides behind it – there is greater value in ideas that create atmosphere of respect and add value to child’s personal unique abilities; cultivate inner discipline and build strong bond with the outside world without losing oneself. This is our motivation behind stepping into the waters of the Montessori world – so deep and often, unknown. There is abundance of knowledge that leads us to desire to continue pressing into the depth of Montessori method and look into the very core of it.
Early in the beginning of the new year every Montessori homeschooling teacher will have a unique opportunity to join Online Montessori event organised for homeschooling families by Seemi Abdullah – the founder and director of Trillium Montessori. This is a chance to connect with other like-minded home educators from all over the world, hear their stories, and get inspired. We probably all heard “the theory”. We know that Montessori is totally amazing – so beneficial for the child. Now it’s time to learn and get motivated to apply it in practise. This is what this online homeschool conference is about – Practical Montessori Homeschooling. We often see the end result without really knowing what goes behind it, sometimes we see the finished product – polished, beautiful, perfect. But we want to know how to get there. What happens in the “messy workshop”, all the materials and tools that’s been put into practise, the attitude, the bruises, the sleepless nights and the happy moments.
Here is what you can expect from this Online Montessori Event :
- There are 14 workshops spread across three days – January 9-12, 2017

I felt very humbled and grateful for the chance to be a part of this one-of-a-kind event and be presenting among some of the most accomplished, dedicated and passionate Montessori professionals and homeschooling legends. Even though our homeschooling journey has a very short history – my oldest child is only 4, I have been working with children for 10+ years. In my presentation I talk about my experience and understanding of Montessori concept of Freedom within limits. There are other absolutely stellar homeschooling Montessorians who generously share their journey with us. There are best-selling authors, Montessori trainers, Montessori school owners, parent and teachers consultants.
