"The child's development follows a path of successive stages of independence, and our knowledge of this must guide us in our behaviour towards him. We have to help the child to act, will and think for himself. This is the art of serving the spirit, an art which can be practiced to perfection only when working among children."

Maria Montessori, The Absorbent Mind

Developing an understanding of basic Montessori principles will help guide you in your care for the child.  

Together, we will work on understanding the foundation of Montessori's work, including:

  • The Absorbent Mind
  • The Sensitive Periods
  • Human Tendencies
  • The Power of Observation 
  • The Four Planes of Development 
  • The Prepared Environment & Role of the Adult
  • Freedom & Limits 

This workshop can vary in length of time, from 1.5 hours to approx. 4 hours, and anything in between.  Radicle Beginnings is happy to accommodate your, home, school or parent group's needs.
