What if?

What if…Every staff member in your school knew how to teach children how to read?

What if…Every elementary student was a proficient speller, reader and writer?

What if…Your teachers were better observers?

What if…Your staff members knew how to ask the “right” questions to understand children’s needs and behaviors?

What if…Your school community really “got” Montessori education?

What School Leaders Are Saying…

observation secretsI’ve found your Secrets of Observation to be so extremely useful that I’d like to bring it to my entire staff as part of our fall in-service. We have approximately 29 staff attending.

montessori workshops for parentsThank you so much for this workshop! It has reminded me of why I loved the Montessori Method in the first place…thinking outside the box about children and education. I will be working to implement what I have learned in the classroom, and no doubt I will be asking questions along the way. 

Each time I have taken one of your workshops, I have a renewed and revived excitement for this work. There have been a lot of challenges over the last few years, and I am very thankful for the support your courses provide. 

Alison Harris, Georgia, USA

montessori workshops for parentsCongratulations for the job well done with your workshops. It’s easy to follow, great quality of videos, clear instructions, clear mp3 recordings, great reading materials and great online support.

Honestly, the online workshop is amazing because I have no time pressure, no stress of language barrier because I can always paused and replay the video as many times as I like. It’s the best method of learning for a non-native speaker like me.

I will definitely recommend your workshops…
