I’m Simona, passionate about intentional, conscious, respectful education of the child and of children’s developmental needs, especially until the age of 6. I believe that a child is deeply shaped by their experiences and I believe in the power of knowledge: knowledge of their development and of our role in guiding them.
I am a certified AMI Montessori Guide and I have worked with children for over 5 years in Montessori environments in Romania and Vietnam. I am an internationally accredited Positive Discipline parental educator (Positive Dscipline Association) and I use the Montessori philosophy and positive discipline principles to guide adults in truly being a support for the child.
My experience with the children and parents I’ve collaborated with has deepened my understading of the child and their needs, of the importance of the adults in their lives and have cemented the idea that these first 6 years of life are essential.
A loved and respected child can change the world! Who we are to and for them builds who they will be.
I created My Montessori Shelf with this in mind.
I offer adults support to build connection and colaboration based relationships.
I help you use respectful techniques that encompass Montessori and Positive Discipline principles, in order to support the child’s socio-emotional development.
I am always looking for something new to learn, especially science-backed tools that can improve the child-adult relationship and help us to better support their natural development.
I am fascinated by neuroscience and the discoveries that prove just how important a respecftul approach of the child is, with healthy boundaries, with an emotionally rich environment, with present, aware, connected adults, that develop their true potential.
I my passionate work I include a wide range of information that comes from my Montessori experience and training, my Positive Discipline training, in order to empower as many adults as possible to support the child through conscious, informed and loving actions.
Let’s learn together!
