Terri Sherrill |
Planning for Toddler Transitions

When do toddlers transition to the primary program?

How do we know they are ready? Are primary teachers ready to receive our youngest students? How do we, as school leaders budget for classrooms if we need to leave openings in the primary classes? Well…so many questions deserve some thoughtful responses and discussions!

Lorna McGrath |
A Parenting Instructor for Your School?

Do you wish that you not only had a parenting instructor who actually understood Montessori?

If so, the Parenting Puzzle – The Basics might be just the ticket. In this webcast there will also be a sneak preview of the next course in the Parenting PuzzleRight from the Start for prenatal through three years old.
