These periods correspond to special sensibilities to be found in creatures in process of development; they are transitory and confined to the acquisition of a determined characteristic.
Growth is thus not something vague, an inexorable innate heredity, but a labor guided meticulously by transitory instincts which bring an urge to determined activities.
Maria Montessori, Ch.3 The Secret of Childhood
Dr. Montessori’s theories on human development are intriguing and still progressive in the field of education. If you have been promising yourself a deeper dive into these revelations, now is your chance.
Our monthly series of online workshops are hosted by AMI trainer, Cheryl Ferreira. The one-hour sessions of exploration and discovery will enrich classroom application. Although aimed at Montessori teachers and assistants, everyone interested in a richer understanding of Dr. Montessori’s writings is welcome.
Sessions take place on the first Tuesday of each month at 7pm and each is independent - attend all or just one.
