    Theory Live!

    Dr. Montessori’s theories on human development are intriguing and still progressive in the field of education. If you have been promising yourself a deeper dive into these revelations, now is your chance.

    We are pleased to announce a monthly series of online workshops hosted by AMI trainer, Cheryl Ferreira. The 45-minute sessions of exploration and discovery will enrich classroom application. Although aimed at Montessori teachers and assistants, everyone interested in a richer understanding of Dr. Montessori’s writings is welcome.

    Sessions take place on the first Tuesday of each month at 4pm and each is independent - attend all or just one. See below for dates and topics of the first three sessions:

    The workshops are free for Montessori Society AMI UK members and £10 per session for non-members. Not a member? Join here.

    "We can imagine an adult society organized as a constructive society on the same lines as the children’s – that is, along the lines of this naturally cohesive society. Attachment to other people is the first stage, bringing men to work together towards a common goal."

    Maria Montessori, The 1946 London Lectures 

    This professional development course focuses on the needs of adults working in Montessori schools. The sessions will create new coaches and strengthen existing ones by providing systems for reflective child-centred practice, that supports the growth and development of adults.
