The workshop starts off with a brief introduction of what Montessori is, before we dive into the 8 key concepts that make up the philosophy. This section will cover topics such as how we can set up a suitable play are for our children to keep them engaged, how we can introduce the concept of independence, empathy and respect to our children, how to effectively manage tantrums, and how to help our children learn better. We will also engage in some mindfulness exercises to build mental wellness.
