    For success in life depends in every case on self-confidence and the knowledge of one’s own capacity and many-sided powers of adaption. The consciousness of knowing how to make oneself useful, how to help mankind in many ways, fills the soul with noble confidence, with almost religious dignity. The feeling of independence must be bound to the power to be self-sufficient, not a vague form of liberty deducted from the help afforded by the gratuitous benevolence of others.

    Maria Montessori, From Childhood to Adolescence (Appendix A: Erdkinder)


    In this talk, we visit Montessori's guiding principles to help parents and young people navigate through the turbulent periods on the path to adulthood. 

    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.

    Emerging at around two years of age, the will of the child is a precious gift for the construction of harmonious society. Dr. Montessori wrote,

    “Discussions on character training usually turn upon the questions of will and obedience. These, in the minds of most people, are opposed ideas….. Under proper conditions, the will is a force, which impels activities beneficial to life....”

    Maria Montessori, The Absorbent Mind, Ch.25 

    In this session we explore how the freedom and limits children encounter impact the development of this formative impulse.

    “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?

    In our tiny children the evidence of a mathematical bent shows itself in many striking and spontaneous ways.

    In fact, if we showed them exactly how to do something, this precision itself seemed to hold their interest. To have a real purpose to which the action was directed, this was the first condition, but the exact way of doing it acted like a support which rendered the child stable in his efforts, and therefore brought him to make progress in his development. Order and precision, we found, were the keys to spontaneous work in the school.

    Maria Montessori, The Absorbent Mind, Ch.17


    Information is power. This session discusses how ability, confidence and creativity flourish across all areas of development, when adults give consideration to the capacity of the child’s ‘mathematical mind’.
