The greatness of the human personality begins at the hour of birth. From this almost mystic affirmation there comes what may seem a strange conclusion: that education must start from birth. Strange, because, how, in a practical sense, can we educate a newborn babe, or even an infant during the first two years of his life? What lessons shall we give to this tiny being who understands nothing of what we say, and cannot even move his limbs?
Maria Montessori, The Absorbent Mind
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 4.30pm and each is independent - attend all or just one.
