The Montessori approach provides children with a nurturing environment, while engaging families and the community in the children's process
of growth and development. 

Montessori as a holistic, humanist approach provides the ideal setting for quality early childhood care and education that impact children not only for the participation period,
but also on the long term.

Online Book discussioncircles

We are now running book discussion circles online for all graduates and students of the MEPI diploma, as well as anyone interested in the world-famous method!

It is a great chance to share views and reflections on Dr. Montessori's writings, across a wide range of experiences.

It is a time to connect and re-connect!
