My Little Montessori
The Workshops are based on the practice and transmission of Montessori pedagogy.
* A jovial place of sharing around caring, positive parenting and educational methods.
* A prepared Nest in a friendly space to accommodate children and parents. * A precious time in a bubble, safe from judgments.
our main choice of philosophy is MONTESSORI TO INSPIRE OUR CONTEMPORARY LIVES.
Montessori activities engage the child holistically and actively in his learning, through the involvement of his body, his hands and his will. Free choice is the cornerstone of our approach because it is the starting point for the blossom of attention span, itself pre-requisite for concentration.
Children have a full-time occupation it's called PLAY ! Let them be occupied by it from their early years until their twilight years.
Smiling Angels is here to empower you and your child in his/her journey of childhood. As a parent, you will also renew and reconnect with your child within you. So come and explore different teaching principles.. Lets be the facilitator, the comfort , and help nurture our children in their journey of being a playful child. Lets engage with our children in activities and lessons that will helps us build self understanding, emotions understanding and respect as the child also observes . Together lets enjoy and discover positive discipline by role playing to influence positive relationships. Lets observe our children and other children in a place that invites natural play (learning).

Don’t Be the Last to Know!
Why are we inspired by Montessori ?
Montesori is an alternative educational concept that places the active commitment of the child to the center of autonomous learning. It allows the development of communication, language, physical, THE ME (0-6 egocentric child, absorbent mind ) emotional and social skills of the child in an atmosphere of concentration and joy. It is based on the principle of transmission: "help me do it by myself" or "I can do it by my self". The activities are individual and are at the pace of each. Every child learns to freely choose what he needs. The proposed activities are intended to promote independence, concentration and self-confidence.
Parent - Child relationship
I aspire to find serenity, tranquility and respect in each of my exchanges, and to guide my children to the best of my ability in this journey as a student of life. I dream of a world where even in confrontation or sadness, I can feel my "KINDNESS ABOVE ALL" by remaining totally myself. I dream of Parenting without guilt where education is a gift to life and an enlargement of the unconditional love I carry to my children...
