Choose to be Curious

The Montessori Method

“It’s really a misnomer when we say we are educating children. Children are educating themselves.” ~ Chandra Fernando

What if we were to leave learning up to curiosity? Although that’s not the language used, the Montessori Method is built on children’s own exploration and discovery. Education consultant Chandra Fernando joins me for a delightful conversation about curiosity, Maria Montessori, absorbent minds, failure and peace.
