Spreading Montessori values, one Topponcino at a time !

by Marine Gombault in Cardiff, Wales, United Kingdom

We're still collecting donations

On the 26th October 2020 we'd raised £1,000 with 15 supporters in 56 days. But as every pound matters, we're continuing to collect donations from supporters.

 New stretch target

With the extra money, I would be able to allocate more of my time to run these parent-child workshops and building a real and strong community, based on Montessori values. 


I am Marine, I am a mum, and a Montessori teacher. 

I've started to be interested in Montessori when my daughter has born. And what I initially viewed as an education system rapidly became more than that, it became a way of parenting, a way of living, that values and respects children, from the day they are born (and even before). 

Sadly, in the Uk, Montessori is sometimes seen as unaffordable, and that's right on many accounts. However, I would like to help spread the idea that parents can be supported into implementing Montessori principles at home, from birth, and at almost no cost at all. 

My project's aim is to empower parents through the sharing of knowledge, and facilitating discussions and the sharing of ideas, questions into all communities in Wales. 

As soon as the covid restrictions will be lifted, I am aiming to run parents-child workshops, as well as information sessions that will be free of charge (based on donations only). 

In the meantime, I will be making materials to help raise money, and to also help spread Montessori values. I loved making things such as Mobiles, Fabric balls, Placemats and bibs in my AMI Montessori 0-3 training. But the one that holds the most special place for me was the Topponcino, a small mattress used to hold the Baby and help her feel secure and safe. So I'll be making those and giving them away for free, to families who need it the most, as a first step into Montessori. 

Help me spread Montessori values, one Topponcino at a time !
