Dads and Montessori education

Not everyone knows about Montessori. Why not? It’s so good,’ said a dad whose two sons
attend a Montessori school. On an airplane, he had, by happenstance, sat next to the
veteran Montessorian, Paula P. Lillard, who later wrote the conversation that ensued
between them in the preface of her book, Montessori Today. This dad went on to enthusiastically
express to Paula his observation of the impact of Montessori education on his nine and eleven-year olds:
they get along so well and they are confident. they are almost adult-like in their attitudes
toward others. They care about the world…’ Undoubtedly, he must have been grateful to his wife for
figuring out Montessori education for their children, in the first place.
