Encouraging & Educational

I knew from the start of my parenting journey that I wanted to do things differently! I wanted to give my baby exactly what he needed, not what I was told to give him. Bianca has taught me so much about the Montessori way and it is the one the foundations I always keep in mind as I raise my sweet boy ❤️ thank you for helping add peace and joy to my home!

SO helpful

I absolutely love this podcast. I know that trying to look up/learn things about Montessori - I was pretty overwhelmed. Bianca makes it feel a lot less overwhelming and she’s also very pleasant to listen to. I find her relaxing and her positive energy just what I need when I’m just in the trenches or new motherhood. Bianca is also amazing at answering questions/message via her Instagram which is so nice to have a resource who is sooo knowledgeable about this style of teaching our babies!

Great intro to Montessori

I am so happy to have found this podcast. I have been interested in Montessori for awhile but overwhelmed on where to start and what to focus on. After listening to a just few episodes I am feeling confident and prepared for my Montessori journey with my 8 month old.
