Montessori Training Centre of BC

A Place of Education for adults on the nature of childhood

Primary Mentorship Series:
Does Montessori Really Work?
Presented by Gilda Bonnet:
Open to all Montessori Primary Guides
(This series is taking place IN-PERSON training at the Montessori Training Centre of BC)
SATURDAYS, APRIL 3, 10, 17, 24 & MAY 1, 2021
9:00AM TO 4:00PM

This 5 day IN PERSON Mentorship Series is for all Montessori Primary Guides. The course is held over 5 consecutive Saturdays with the unique option to join for the full 5-day series or the option to join for 3 days.

Dr. Montessori’s method proposes to aid the child in the formation of its personality. The intention of this series of talks is to discover what lies beyond the stated goals of the presentations to recognize what each area offers to this creative process.

We will explore each of the four Primary areas separately over the course of four Saturdays. On our last Saturday we will study the interrelatedness of these areas and the reciprocal role each plays in strengthening and harmonizing the child’s psychic construction.

This careful examination should lead us to a more effective implementation of Dr. Montessori’s holistic approach to education. It should better equip us to assist each child in the fullest development of its spiritual, physical, and mental potential.
