Teaching independence in the bathroom
Toilet Learning
Using the toilet is one of the most important ways toddlers work toward independence. Well before the active toilet learning process, you can start preparing for the process by using diaper changing time to connect with the child, communicate clearly, create consistent routines, and involve the child as much as possible.

How to tell a child what to do, not what not to do
Positive Phrasing
Young children are in a sensitive period for language, which means they are keenly aware of not only what we say, but also how we say it. Positive phrasing is the art of brief and true statements that tell a young child what to do, instead of what not to do. In this session, we will focus on key principles for positive phrasing in Montessori communities, and how its role is effective classroom leadership.

Troubleshoot issues through observation
Observation Principles
In your career, you will run across children that seem to defy understanding. However, it is your calling and responsibility to seek that understanding and help the child forward on his path to development. Observation will be the key methodology that you will use on this quest. In this session, we will learn how observation is at the heart of the Montessori pedagogy and how it can be used to troubleshoot many individual issues that will arise in your classroom daily.

Build positive partnerships with parents
Communicating with Parents Effectively
An effective partnership with parents requires a relationship built upon trust and positive shared experiences, and a willingness to share information about the Montessori method and strategies that have been helpful, both at home and at school. When we do this successfully, the result is a predictable and congruent experience for the child, setting up conditions for the child to thrive.

Deep Dive into Education and how Montessori fits
The History of Education
This course surveys three millennia of educational thought, focusing on the big picture aims and curricular-pedagogical frameworks in Western education. We’ll start with the emergence of curricular education in antiquity, follow the development of classicism through the 19th century, and then examine burgeoning progressive movements. Montessori will be considered as a third historical alternative to these two schools.
