Join The Montessori School of Lake Forest for an informative presentation on how to work with your toddler and young child to gain cooperation yet encourage independence.

Mia Stompanato, a former Montessori student herself has been with the Montessori School of Lake Forest for 27 years.  As a parent, Mia was able to witness her own daughter’s journey in Montessori from 3 months – 15 years old.  Mia is enjoying an abundant life with her husband and now almost 17 year old daughter.  She feels that the limits her daughter learned at  the preschool level laid the foundation for the freedom she can handle as a teenager.  With a positive attitude and clear expectations, Mia helps her students (and their parents) enjoy the triumphs, challenges and lessons of childhood.

Carolyn Lanni has worked with 3-6 year olds for ten years. She holds a Masters in Teaching and Primary AMI Internationale Certification, and she loves how the Montessori framework naturally meets children’s academic, social, and emotional needs. She also has a two-year-old at home, so she is well-versed in how to apply Montessori principles in the home environment. She is currently living the struggles and successes of raising a toddler every day!

Join us for an invigorating conversation as we explore a variety of common parenting concerns.
