Challenging our Practice

The real preparation for education is the study of one’s self. The training of the teacher who is to help life is something far more than the learning of ideas. It includes the training of character; it is a preparation of the spirit. 

Montessori, M. The Absorbent Mind

Montessori was a pioneer, not afraid to observe, reflect and adjust. Join us as we come together to consider how the Montessori philosophy and pedagogy can serve the child in the changing and challenging times we find ourselves in today.

In our monthly webinars, we reflect on our practice and, by means of provocations shared beforehand, challenge ourselves to consider how, and in what form, the essence of Montessori can be preserved and stay relevant for our children growing up in the 21st Century.
