Communicating with Parents Effectively

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.

The cost is $35.

The course will be on Tuesday, October 19th, from 4:30 - 6 pm Eastern Standard Time.

Observation Principles

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.

The cost is $35. Thank you for those who attended in September 2021. Follow us on social media for upcoming events.

Positive Phrasing

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.

The cost is $35.

Thank you to those who attended on Tuesday, July 6! Stay tuned for future offerings.

Independence for Toddlers

Independence for Toddlers

Independence is at the heart of Montessori education, deeply shaping our pedagogy. In this session we will discuss how we can support this natural process within the child, including control of movement, self-care routines, care of the environment, basic communication, and social interactions.

The cost is $35.

Thank you to those who attended on July 8, 2021. Stay tuned for future dates!

Toilet Learning

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.

The cost is $35. Thank you for those who attended in July 2021. Follow us on social media for upcoming events.
