A big thank you to Barbara Isaacs for leading a brilliant workshop on ‘The Work-Cycle and Its Relevance to Montessori Practice Today’. On Saturday 17th June, we welcomed thirty four fellow Montessorians to Grantham Farm, for what was a wonderful region event. Those who attended said how much they enjoyed the theoretical content, grounded so well in Montessori philosophy, and the balance with discussion and how the principles apply to everyday practice. It was an excellent opportunity to talk Montessori for the day and catch up with friends. Thank you so much to all who attended and to those who sent apologies, we look forward to seeing you next time!
Please look out for our next event in the Spring Term.
