Montessori From the Beginning

Pamela Green


We often offer guidance, support, and our Montessori education to families after the birth of their baby. During this presentation we will explore how we can, as Montessorians, welcome and include the family during their time of pregnancy, birth, and the Symbiotic Period. Parenting begins during pregnancy and deepening our understanding of the prenatal life of the unborn child, as well as considerations in preparing for birth, can become an integral part of what is offered in your Montessori community. I will cover a variety of possibilities to add to your services, all of which can create an earlier connection and building of trust in parents as they enter and transition into your schools.
