Welcome Readers :)

Welcome readers !
Thank you for visiting 'Inside the child' and hope that your time spend reading my blog is educational. It includes my thoughts and approach to a child, based on the Montessori educational philosophy that emphasize on independence, freedom within limits and learning concepts of working with materials hands-on, rather than by direct instructions.

My favorite quote by Dr. Maria Montessori “There is in every child a painstaking teacher, so skillful that he obtains identical results in all children in all parts of the world. The only language men ever speak perfectly is the one they learn in babyhood, when no one can teach them anything!”
As a Children's House Montessori teacher, it is my pleasure to share my experience with children of ages 2 1/2 - 7 yrs old, and how small little things makes a big difference. Enjoy reading. Thank you.

Indoor fun !

I remember when I was a kid, I used to join 2 chairs upside down and cover them with a sheet to make my fantasy tent. There were times when I used to live in my tent like, eat, sleep and study. I used also play with friends and family in it. Living/playing in the self-made tent is one of my favourite memories from childhood :)

Why not we try our best to give our children these everlasting memories too. Now-a-days there are so many creative and fun tents available in the market.

In our school, we have lots of fun indoor tents for children to play in winter (mostly). These tents, also help in developing large motor skills. Yes, we have running, yoga and playing outside as other large motor activities, but in some places where we have to compromise on going outside due to harsh cold weather, blizzards or hurricanes, these tents come in very useful. Some interesting tents are:
