Preparing for the First Year Workshop

"I took a workshop with Tracy about a month before my son was due. She taught about the first year of your child's life and how to implement the Montessori technique into your way of parenting. She taught us how to set up your home to encourage Montessori living. She is very honest and real about parenting with the Montessori technique. I enjoyed how the class did not feel militant and strict. It was more open and welcoming. I learned a lot, took lots of notes. But in the end, I feel like I was taught in such a way that her words and knowledge just stuck with me. Perhaps its her accent." - Jessica
