Supporting children from 0 – 2 in a Montessori setting with Barbara Issacs

On 11 November Leeds Montessori School and Day Nursery welcomed over 30 practitioners to explore Supporting 0 – 2 Year Olds in a Montessori Setting.  Barbara Isaacs delivered the session and there was plenty of opportunity to discuss practice, share ideas and to have a look around the setting.  It was a brilliant chance to refresh and develop practice.  The attendees also shared some new materials for older children and the next region training on 12 May will explore new ideas right across the curriculum including an art session.  To book for the next training contact
