The Prepared Adult; Transforming Yourself to Support Your Child’s Development

Nusaibah Macadam


Through her extensive observations, Dr Montessori was able to share with us a framework of child development from birth to 18 years. Giving us amazing insight into how children learn and how we can support the natural development that is taking place. However, no matter how much an adult knows about the development of the child, we are unable to truly support them unless we undergo a transformation to become a ‘Montessori prepared adult’. This presentation will be full of information to get you started on your journey of self-transformation so that you can properly support your children whether at home or in a school setting. Get ready to self-reflect and change!
