Peace begins with the education
of the children
"Peace is what every human being
is craving for, and it can be brought about by humanity through the
"Within the child lies the fate of the future." Maria Montessori
“If we are to reach real peace
in this world and if we are to carry on a real war against war, we
shall have to begin with children.”
Mohandas Gandhi in a 1931 speech at the Montessori Training College,
New Child Montessori is a resource for teachers and homeschool
parents, serving Montessori schools and parents
since 2000 with affordable curriculum materials and teaching guides for use with
preschool, kindergarten, and early elementary.
A Guide for the Montessori
is a set of four
guides that provide a complete
curriculum based on the teachings of Maria Montessori and her peace curriculum,
also known as "cosmic
education." The guides are designed to be flexible for continued use each year as
it follows and grows with the child from ages 3 to 9.
The curriculum may be followed day by
day if desired, but may also be used as a "guide" to
Maria Montessori's cosmic theme into all the areas of the classroom
while following the needs and interests of each child.

Use the Guides.

Montessori Home School Curriculum
The Montessori Method is used

ages (3 to 6, 6 to 9, and 9 to 12) and it is well suited for the homeschool environment of a single
child or group of varying ages. The set of four guides includes day
by day lesson suggestions for each day of the year. The Supplement to the Guides
was created especially for homeschooling parents. It contains an overview of
Montessori philosophy, guidelines for using the guides, and instructions
Montessori materials/equipment. No other
teaching manuals or textbooks are needed with ages 3 to 6. Math, Language,
and other areas of study are built into the Montessori materials.
Montessori materials are used with the guides which can be as much
or as little as the budge allows. Many of the materials may be
handmade. Please email for more information.
The curriculum may also be combined with traditional methods if
desired. This complete curriculum includes an
invitation for email consultations and questions with the author, Gini Newcomb.
