Paula will discuss the basis of Montessori’s approach. An approach that is based on the model that children absorb what they need from their environment to build themselves up, both physically and psychologically. 

She will also introduce the three pillars that create the framework of Montessori education:

  • The Prepared Environment
  • The Prepared Adult
  • Freedom with Responsibility

If you are a parent, teacher, or administrator who would like to understand Montessori clearly enough to put it into practice and explain it to others, then this is for you.
