“Education is a natural process carried out by the child and is not acquired by listening to words but by experiences in the environment.”
Maria Montessori

Specialising in early childhood development and communication, The Independent Child has helped families across Australia with practical solutions to help parents nurture the inborn drive of every child to be able to say “I can do it myself”. I offer practical guidance, support and solutions to parents and educators through workshops, individual consultations and mentoring.
