I am Lisa, mother of Luce and Solal. We live in Johannesburg, South Africa.
I am passionate about the Montessori philosophy and as a family we practice it in our everyday life.
I want to help other parents follow the Montessori principles at home so that more children can grow with its amazing benefits: independence, self-confidence, love for learning and deeply rooted knowledge.
That is how My Montessori Home started. Actually, as many good stories, it started with a coffee, when I met my partner Alan in 2017. I shared my vision and marketing experience, Alan brought his engineering background and woodworking passion to the project.
Having the products made in South Africa was key, as we wanted to control closely the quality of the material and to contribute to our local community. We found trusted local suppliers to embark on this journey with us.
Together with our suppliers and working closely with Montessori educators, we created a line of Montessori material designed for the home.
The Montessori pedagogy is grounded on principles, the toys, or materials, as Maria Montessori called them, are the tools for the child's independent learning. That is why our products include an activity guide for the parents to use them "in the Montessori way". We hope that being more familiar with the Montessori principles will help the parents put the pedagogy in practice with their children beyond our products.
Your encouragements, feedback and suggestions are greatly appreciated.
Thank you for reaching out and taking an active role in My Montessori Home
