This workshop will explore how to kindle students’ imaginations, stimulating their capacity for investigation, work, and conceptual understanding. You will be guided to examine the nature of children’s humor, find playful, silly ways to capture their attention, and, as a result, be able to affect serious, deliberate learning.

    Long before there were Infant & Toddler programs, Montessori infant specialists went into homes to support mothers before and after they gave birth. Just as the work of an older child is respected in a Montessori environment, the work of the mother and baby is to also be observed, understood, and respected. Through observation, unnecessary intervention and interruption can be avoided, and the best possible environment can be provided. In this workshop, hear from 3 Montessorians who support families through pregnancy, birth, and newborn symbiosis. Learn techniques for offering support, not only within our current communities, but also to those without access to high-quality support.
