“I believe that children are tailors of their own development and, if we follow them attentively, providing them with the nurturing environment along the way, they will grow into responsible and caring citizens of the world.”

Irena Hujdur is a Psychologist and a certified Montessori teacher for the age 3-6. She obtained her Bachelor’s degree in Pedagogy and Psychology in 2009, the first Montessori certificate in 2013 from MCI (London, UK), followed by MACTE accredited course by CGMS (Tampa, FL) which she completed in 2020.

Montessori philosophy has been her passion for the past 8 years and she strives to be a lifelong learner herself.

She dedicates this blog to parents and fellow teachers as a platform where she will provide free printables, crash courses, video presentations and parenting advice. Unfortunately, obtaining good quality materials is costly nowadays and only a handful of students get the privilege to attend Montessori schools in most of the countries. But thanks to the generous vision of Maria Montessori, who never copyrighted her name and methodology, we can recreate some of her iconic materials and help continue her legacy by making it accessible to as many children as possible.

“An education capable of saving humanity is no small undertaking: it involves the spiritual development of man, the enhancement of his value as an individual, and the preparation of young people to understand the times in which they live.”
