Meeting the Needs of Our Infants and Toddlers

Simone Davies


So often we have plans for the child – “I want them to play with…” “how can I get them to like/get interested in…?” “I hope they grow up to…. Instead, this workshop brings us back to the child and what they are showing us. When we understand the needs of our toddlers and infants, we can find ways to have calmer homes and classrooms.

You will walk away from this workshop with:

  • tools to observe the child to see what they are showing us
  • an understanding of the needs of our infants and toddlers
  • a big-picture view of how Montessori can meet the needs of all children
