Assistant 101: Explore what it means to be a Montessori Assistant
(Part I: Wednesday, September 1st, 2021, 3-5pm)
Join experienced Infant/Toddler, Primary, and Elementary Trained guides for a meaningful day developing and enriching your skills as an assistant in a Montessori Classroom.
What principles form the foundation of an excellent learning environment? Where do you fit in and what can you do to support the children and other adults you work with on a daily basis? Through presentations, discussion and activities we will explore how Montessori education encompasses recent research on essential principles of successful learning environments.
Drawing upon your own classroom experiences for inspiration, we’ll deepen our understanding of the prepared environment, learn more about how to foster supportive interactions with children, and discuss ways to maintain our enthusiasm and energy throughout the school year.
