Practical life – “An aid to life”

February 9th 2020

The little child who persists in his exercises, concentrated and absorbed, is obviously elaborating the constant man, the man of character, he who will find in himself human values, crowning that unique fundamental manifestation: persistence in work. Whatever task the child may choose it will all be the same, provided he persists in it. For what is valuable is not the work itself, but the work as a means for the construction of the psychic man.

Maria Montessori, The Absorbent Mind

Why Practical life? Why does its role play a significant part in supporting the development of character, concentration and community. 

In this workshop we will be returning to the principles that define the role that practical life plays in strengthening ones character and how it fosters the development of a peaceful world. 

The day will be a balance of pedagogy and application of principles into practice.

The sensorial explorer – a foundation for the intelligence 

May 30th 2020 – postponed

The first characteristics which manifests itself in our children after their process of auto education has been initiated, is that their reactions become ever ready and more rapid; a sensory stimulus which might before have passed unobserved or might have roused a languid interest, is vividly perceived.’  – Maria Montessori 

Children are naturally drawn to use their senses for exploration in the first few years of life. When we support this, we help them to build a mind that perceives all the nuances of the world around them clearly. 

Over the course of this workshop we reflect upon how these developmentally based experiences support the development of perception, judgment and intelligent thinking.

Positive words and Mindful Actions

May 31st 2020 – postponed

As Montessori guides, our responsibility for our children extends beyond the immediate, towards helping to create a better world. 

As their role models, how we act and the way we communicate with our children, play a large part in whether they view the world in a positive or negative light.

“No-one can do for the child, the work that he has to do, to build the man he is making….”

Montessori believed that the power to self-construct lies within the child. Our role however is nevertheless important. It is to understand and work with the child’s creative energies and find the means to draw out the potential of each human being.

In the workshop we will study how through mindful actions and positive words, we are able to assist in the development and strengthening of character.

The day will be a balance of reflective practice for the adult and and application of pedagogical principles into practice.
