Based on Dr, Montessori's principles and practices, The Montessori Child conducts parent education and encourages observations of children at work.


Since Ruby was Elizabeth´s first teacher at a formal school setting, the importance of her teaching abilities cannot be underestimated. She is everything a parent could wish for in a Montessori Pre-School teacher. She is well-versed in the philosophy of Montessori, has endless patience and fine teaching skills. Her warm, caring personality nurtured our child and provided a solid foundation from which Elizabeth could safely explore every aspect of learning."

"Ruby has a calm strength which is felt by her students and which easily gains her confidence with them. She has been helpful in providing information on parenting from a Montessori perspective, which has been most welcome..."

- Jamie L. Scluessel
"It is my belief that Ruby is not only a loving mother but also a well-rounded individual who lives by the principles of sharing knowledge, mutual understanding and respect she always advocated at Montessori School."

- Dr. Daniela Sovak
