Music is a central part of any school curriculum. 🎻💡⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
However, many schools don’t have the budget or the expertise to have their own program. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Even schools that have a great music program miss out on introducing children to music from around the world.🤝 There’s no curriculum for it, and so teachers are just doing the best they can…until now!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🦊 Fiddlefox provides classroom teachers with a rich and engaging cultural music program that can be taught by musicians and non-musicians alike. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Our easy to use curriculum provides teachers with a comprehensive stand alone program 💡🧠 or supplemental content to what they are already reaching.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Teachers and students can listen to some of the incredibly diverse songs from Fiddlefox while singing in English and in the native tongue. 🦊⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Our colored rainbow bells and sheet music gives teachers and children the opportunity to play music together. 🎻⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And for those who are electronically inclined online streaming content, teacher resources, printables, and trainings are available at Fiddlefox Streaming.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

One of the most favours phrases between Montessori teachers is: “you can teach children with only using stones and sticks”! 🤗⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Every time we visit the beach, spend time near water or in the woods I notice this more and more.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
My children can spend HOURS sitting down concentrated, without arguments, fighting, shouting... and instead, playing with soil, sticks and stones! 🌳🌲⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You may ask, but how it links to Montessori system?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🌴 It is the trust towards our environment - everyone knows that going for walks in nature is beneficial!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🌴 Natural objects for play. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🌴 Ability to spend time by yourself!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It is amazing to see, but children are SELF-SUFFICIENT in such an environment and we follow our instincts simply leave them ALONE! 😉🤝⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

EARLY CHILD DEVELOPMENT: good or bad?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
First, let’s establish what early development means…⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Mary Montessori stated that early development and environmental influence starts from the moment the baby is conceived 🤰.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
She established that the child is growing and developing regardless if they have an adult presence near them. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The newborn’s brain 🤱 is developing gradually: not steady, but in phases. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Our children 🧒👧, like sponges, absorb information they receive from their surroundings.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In Montessori philosophy, the main focus is paid towards periods of most opportunities when it comes to mental development 🧠, which start between ages 0 to 6 years old. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
An adult⠀🙎‍♀️🙎‍♂️ can either help the child reach their maximum potential 👩‍👧‍👦,, or become a barrier towards achieving it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Mary Montessori: “Protecting the child too much only limits their development” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This means that the point is not about benefits or damages of early development ☝️, because despite it the child is naturally growing and developing anyway. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The point here is - whether we as adults support early development of our children or become a barrier towards it?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
