Become a confident Montessori leader

In our communities we aim for more than “classroom management.” We aim to be effective leaders. Montessori is based on the idea of non-compulsory education. In this 3-hour workshop, we will discuss how to set children on the path towards self-discipline and how you can become a confident leader in your environment.

Become a confident Montessori leader

WHAT WILL BE DISCUSSED

  • How does a Montessori Community function? What are the basics?
  • Ingredients for successful Classroom Leadership
  • Tracking progress over time

PERFECT FOR

  • Montessori educators
  • Montessori administrators
  • Assistant Guides interested in deepening their understanding of the Montessori approach to classroom management

WHAT YOU'LL WALK AWAY WITH

  • A thorough understanding of the basic building blocks on which Montessori communities operate, offering freedom within limits
  • A step by step ‘recipe’ for effective classroom leadership, including limit setting strategies
  • A reference point for expected progress over time, from initial disorder to a normalized classroom
My favourite parts were the concrete examples. I feel that often in trainings, we are given theories and not given examples for how to apply them, but after this training it feels easy to apply these foundations.
