Look to the child”  Maria Montessori

On our path as Montessori teachers we communicate with many people. Some of our work is mentoring – mentoring parents or colleagues. Yet, we are always advocates for young children’s development.

This workshop is a time to re-discover your capacity in the role with the child and the family and how we guide, collaborate with and support each one.

We will look at Parent Education and the many other tools we can use today.

We will explore parent events and how to implement a calendar of ongoing outreach in your school communities.

In our career we support newly trained teachers and assistants coming into Montessori afresh. Time will be spent on the strategies and support we can give them.

As a Montessori teacher you will learn to hone the skills of  adviser, supporter, counsellor, guide and more on a day to day basis! During this workshop we will explore the varied elements of mentoring and what that could look like in the many areas of our work.

Montessori is a career where you can find yourself advocating and mentoring anytime and anywhere in the world.
