John Bowman’s most
rewarding work was being a Montessori preschool Teacher and Director. He
opened three new Montessori preschool programs; and was the first
Director of the Garfield Montessori School in Denver, Colorado. His
goals now are to encourage parents to do early learning activities with
their children and to show them how.
many years I was privileged to observe and assist children in their use
of Montessori Prepared Environments. I was continually amazed at how
fast young children grow and develop while using these learning
activities. Eventually, I came to believe that parents could easily
provide these experiences for their own children, right at home.
These resources are designed to get you started quickly and easily; but with understanding and an organized plan for doing early learning activities at home. I sincerely hope they are the catalysts for allowing many parents to have the same experiences of observing rapid growth and development in their children that a Montessori Teacher has every day.
