Description

Seminar for Toddler Montessori Educators

Featuring Susan Tracy McDaniel and Michelle Battistone

Learn how to create an optimal Montessori Toddler program that is meaningful and developmentally appropriate! Build the skills needed to facilitate an amazing Montessori classroom!

Saturday - Environmental Design and Developmentally Appropriate Activities for Toddlers

What should a toddler environment look like? How should it be set up? How does Montessori philosophy and child development guide the design of the classroom? You will be exploring, dissecting and beginning to understand the first plane of development and what an authentic toddler environment should look and feel like.

Sunday - Importance of Positive Guidance and Documentation

What is the adults' role in the Montessori environment? How does a child's behavior impact the classroom? How does the adult respectfully guide the child? Adults need to understand the child, plan appropriate activities and learn the individual behavior tendencies of toddlers. This allows the environment to become "normalized" and a place where children are independent, self-motivated and working as a community. Learning how to plan lessons, document appropriately and have a record keeping system in place are a vital part of supporting a child with their own inner drive to learn and be a successful contributing member of the community.
