PD 0-3 Years: Preparing the Montessori Adult: Our Role as an Agent for Peace – from Birth to Three

Children learn about the world and themselves through their daily experiences. 

Our role is to prepare an environment that allows tamariki to have experiences that meet both their physical needs (i.e. provide a safe place to allow for freedom of movement and development) and their psychological needs (i.e. to promote the development of trust with themselves and their environment). We will consider how to support children and their parents/whānau in the home. 

 This is a 2-day workshop.

Saturday:
Using relatable and everyday examples from our work with tamariki under three, we will look at two fundamental areas of Montessori pedagogy: namely the Human Tendencies and the Planes of Development. We will explore freedom and the development of self-discipline alongside our role as a guide for children and parents. 

Sunday:
We can always guarantee that children will behave as children do! How do we as the adult respond or react to big emotions or challenging behaviours? 

Together, we will explore three simple strategies towards building a community culture that promotes education for peace. 

Facilitator: Leena Savolainen

Leena Savolainen has been part of the ISMS community since 2003 when her eldest daughter began preschool. Over the years her enthusiasm for the Montessori approach to education has grown as she has witnessed the benefits for her own children and countless other families. Leena was inspired to become an AMI trained 0 – 3 educator as she believes that the relationships and experiences in early childhood lay the foundation for the adult we become. She has a background in counselling, public health, adult education, biology, and science communication. She has worked in educational settings in a variety of contexts for over 25 years. Leena is passionate about her role in supporting parents and their children in Montessori environments. In addition to her formal training, Leena is a mother of four children: two daughters and two sons from 8 to 19 years of age.
