As teachers we continually give of ourselves and rightly so as we contribute to tomorrows generation. We impact on who our children become, what they think they can be and do. As we give out, naturally we need something to come back in.

Through Continued Professional development , learning and being inspired by new ideas, taking time to pause, learn and reflect allows us to also be the best we can be. Truly reflective practitioners is key to our own personal development.

In the Kent and East Sussex region we have arranged the following over the last year:

  • Positive Language
  • Lego therapy
  • Child Protection
  • First Aid Paediatric
  • Nuero developmental disorders.

These events are always followed by time. Time to share, listen, reflect over lunch in a supportive environment.

“Positive Language ” with Sarah Rowledge on 9th June 2018, 10-1500

“Positive language is the core essence of what we are and what we are trying to achieve with the children in our settings. The language that we use has a huge impact on those around us and therefore Sarah will present to us how to reinforce the use of positive language. Such language is designed to manage and lead behaviour and learning by creating a supportive atmosphere and guiding our children to positive outcomes.

This training day is something that we as Montessorians utilise and promote every day and we welcome you to come and either refresh what you already know or to come and find out for the first time how positive language can create a more encouraging environment.

It is a fabulous day welcomed by staff and parents of a setting alike”.
