At Montesshare, we work to honor and ease that time for both you and your child. We are building a community of families who value not only the structure and freedom inherent in Montessori education, but the connection, as well.
Montesshare was birthed from Joy Wilder’s desire for an affordable, Montessori, Spanish bilingual education for her own four children. She draws on her experience co-founding TOTH Montessori (Best of D.C. Preschools three years and counting!), her deep desire to help families thrive and a commitment to the science of child development and education in order to create this beautiful Montessori space. She loves equipping parents to parent for more moments of appreciation and peace with their child!

Maria Montessori was a physician in Italy in the early 1900’s. The government was struggling with children being left at home during the day while their parents worked. Dr. Montessori had worked successfully with special needs children, so they asked her to establish a program to care for the children. Through careful observation and experimentation, Dr. Montessori learned what materials and activities engaged the children’s interest, appealing to their instinctive need to learn. Her goals were to meet their developmental needs, and to teach them practical skills, academic fundamentals, respect for others, and care of self and the environment.
