CLOSE YOUR EYES AND IMAGINE THE START OF THE NEW SCHOOL YEAR

What do you feel? Mixed emotions?

Are you looking forward to seeing your children again? Are you concerned about new children settling in and training new colleagues?

We know that this time of the year is going to be busy and full of challenges.

But how can we ease this settling in period?

Join our two-day training programme!

WHAT WILL YOU LEARN?

The programme is created and designed for Montessori trained 3-6 guides who wish to deepen their knowledge and develop their Montessori Children’s House practice.

DAY 1

  • What are our responsibilities and roles and why are they important?
  • What conditions need to be in place to enable children to gain a sense of knowing what their freedoms are?
  • How do we introduce the collective stage, as Montessori referred to it?
  • What is going to call a child to engage and develop both themselves and that of social cohesion?

Karen will share with you a six-week developmental programme for the beginning of the school year that she created during her classroom years together with an AMI 3-6 trainer Hilla Patell.

The programme consists of teaching strategies, techniques and a clear structure that needs to be implemented over the first six weeks at the start of the school year. It provides a firm foundation for each child and the classroom community as a whole.

It will serve as a reassurance to you in knowing what to do at the wake of a new school year truly supporting and easing your first six weeks in the Children’s House year.

DAY 2

  • What is attention and what does it require of the human being to give one's attention?
  • What are the different types of choices that a child makes and how does our understanding of these choices impact upon and influence our response?
  • How do you know what to offer? Do you truly follow the needs and interests of each child?
  • What are the guiding principles that steer your actions and responses?

You will question and reflect on how to support each child in their capacity to choose and what implications does this have as they travel along the path to normalisation. It is our constant quest to know how best to support the emergence of concentration. We will reflect upon how to develop it.

All the principles introduced will be led by the developmental needs of a child, a practical understanding of theory into action.

You will leave with a deeper appreciation of the theoretical principles and lots of techniques and strategies that can be applied at the beginning of the school year.

It will change your life!
