Theory Live!

“Imagination has always been given a predominant place in the psychology of childhood, and all over the world - people tell their children fairy stories, which are enjoyed immensely as if the children wanted to exercise this great gift, as imagination undoubtedly is. Yet, when all are agreed that the child loves to imagine, why do we give him only fairy tales and toys on which to practice this gift? ….We often forget that imagination is a force for the discovery of truth.”

Maria Montessori, The Absorbent Mind, Ch.17

Fact, fantasy and fiction - how can parents and teachers nurture children's intellect while supporting their propensity for imaginative play?

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.
