The Principal, Anne-Marie, introduced the evening by highlighting the importance of fostering ‘Independence’ as a foundation for life. Montessori’s famous quote: “Help me do it by myself” is a guiding principle and key aim of Montessori practitioners. Children have a spontaneous and natural drive for independence. this is not a pedagogical slogan but something that comes from within – a child’s innate need to be able to do things for themselves.
Anne-Marie went on to show how in our Montessori environment we help each child to achieve this…
Our guest speaker, Jeremy Clarke, lecturer at Montessori Centre International and with a wealth of teaching experience gave a thought provoking talk on ‘Montessori on your mind’. The Active Mind – a brief introduction to the brain and how research is giving strength to the Montessori approach and how this benefits our children.
The evening concluded with Charlotte White, a very experienced Montessori teacher, with her own children and grandchildren, outlining the purpose and content of the sessions she offers to parents.
