As parents and guides in preschool we all wish the best for your children. The age birth to six is a unique time in a child’s life – the foundation of all future learning! It is the key age to personality development and to grow the child to his fullest potential. This inspiring course is a guide to get to know the needs and potential of young children as well as an introduction of basic principles of Montessori approach. We will focus on a child’s potential to learn languages and how we as adults can support it. Dive into the Montessori approach with us!
