Authentic Montessori education is the most powerful way for children to learn. It encompasses a culture that is innovative, respectful of the child, peaceful, joyful, collaborative, child-centered, community- minded, developmentally exacting, and supported by research. Parents don’t need to create a Montessori classroom, but they can observe, use appropriate language and allow the child to have freedom within limits. You will hear from Montessori-trained teachers, who are developmental specialists, about what the key issues and sensitivities are for the infant and toddler-aged child. Explore what parenting techniques work best for creating a happy, harmonious home and a highly-functioning child and learn how to bring some of these techniques into the spaces around your home and develop strategies for nurturing a healthy independence in your child.
