One of the greatest innovators in education and cognitive psychology was Maria Montessori. Unlike other famous well-known innovators of her time, such as Jean Piaget and John Dewey, her work was extremely practical. She was less interested in why children did things at a certain time than in providing ways to support and enhance healthy development and learning.
Though child-size furniture, objects for young mathematicians to manipulate, and the innovations we now call, ‘hands-on learning,’ are almost universally accepted today, Montessori originated them all. Less than 30 years ago, it was hard to find well-designed furniture sized for a three-year-old. Yet Montessori was promoting and providing these innovations in1907. The true test of an innovator is that his, or her, ideas are now common practice.
Montessori for Everybody is devoted to making these revolutionary learning ideas available to parents and teachers of all children. We even believe they hold many of the keys to dynamic, effective, enjoyable training experiences for adults as well. Learn how you can begin to use Montessori’s ideas to make learning a delightful, productive experience for all those you teach and parent.
What Others Have Experienced
“Souzzann offered and continues to offer me the ability to view a master at work and life. Specifically, in working with children and as a dad, Souzzann has developed in me the opportunity to afford the child a space to feel safe, know that one may fail in the moment but ultimately will recover, be present in the company of the child and parent. In the absence of Souzzann in my life, as guide, I’m quite sure I would be the lesser educator, dad and person. I am, and will be forever, grateful to Souzzann.”Shawn Crawford
“I realized a new sense of confidence. . . I had a plan for taking one concept and working on it for 2 weeks and then adding other parts. . . If you are interested in helping yourself or your children, this is the best available.”Jolaine Skinner
“I was so impressed with what I found in the Practical Life set that I purchased the whole program. And I have not been disappointed. Every module is jam packed with helpful information and resources.

“I’m just 20 minutes into Souzzann Zink’s Inner Preparation of the Adult, and I’ve learned more practical information in that 20 minutes than I have in my last few months of researching! I was sharing with my husband last night as he looked over my notes, and even he is motivated to learn more!”Bree Petty
