What is Montessori?

"Montessori" is the last name of Dr. Maria Montessori, a pioneer who developed a novel approach to whole child education in the 1800s. She used her own scientific observations of children from birth to adulthood in developing the model. Dr. Montessori’s method has been around for over 100 years. It has been successful in virtually all cultures as well as in both short term and longitudinal studies.

I'm not a teacher and don't know much about Montessori. Can I use the M3 curriculum?

Yes! You are exactly who M3 was designed for. Homeschoolers face a unique set of circumstances and challenges that rarely mimic those of a classroom, so our products are designed with that in mind. For example, our products are designed for use by parents, not teachers. They do not assume that you have specific classroom materials. They are visually engaging, feel like play, and work for multiple age groups.

I am really limited on time. Is the M3 curriculum right for me?

Maybe. All M3 products are streamlined to save time and promote efficiency in learning. However, you will need to be able to devote at least 2-5 hours per week to environment preparation, as well as the time necessary for schooling. Be wary of programs and curricula claiming to be “Montessori" but require no preparation. A cornerstone of the Montessori philosophy is having a prepared environment. Your environment is crucial to the success of homeschooling. Good, thorough preparation takes time.

Does M3 curriculum include all subject areas?

Yes. It includes Geography, Language Arts, Mathematics, Practical Life, Science, and Sensorial. Additionally, M3 curriculum offers customizable Unit Studies designed to focus on your child(ren)'s individual interests and sensitive periods, while remaining aligned with Montessori principles. 

Does M3 curriculum follow the standard Montessori Scope and Sequence?

Yes. M3 curriculum's core subject areas - Geography, Mathematics, Practical Life, Science, and Sensorial - follow the Montessori Scope and Sequence. However, M3 is self-contained, which means that you do not need to purchase any other items in order to use it. And, M3 is crafted for in-home use and thoughtfully designed for efficiency. So, some activities from the Scope & Sequence are modified or deleted to accommodate for this.  

Will my child(ren) be able to return to his or her Montessori school without issue following use of M3 curriculum?

Absolutely. Your child(ren) may even be ahead! Because M3 is customizable to your child(ren)'s interests and sensitive periods, your child(ren) may be able to excel in ways you never thought possible with M3.
