Infant Community

Infant Community Parent education.

Parent education is an inherent component of the delivery of all Infant Community programs and much of the reason the community exists. 

However, particular topics warrant dedicated sessions. For this reason Infant Community Directors host a toileting workshop each term and often one other evening event covering a key topic.

The Montessori Parent 

Are you new to the Montessori pedagogy? Do you already know about the principles and would like to know more? Do you feel overwhelmed by the ‘perfect’ Montessori images on social media? If so, then please join Leena Savolainen and Sarah Breckenridge, two highly qualified and experienced Montessori guides.

We will host a 90 minute session of open discussion with the opportunity for you to ask all those questions you haven’t been able to ask before. This will take place in a nurturing, non-judgemental setting where no question is too insignificant to ask. We look forward to sharing a rich and informative conversation with you in this online forum.

Session 1: Wednesday 28 October   6.30pm – 8.00pm
Session 2: Wednesday 25 November   6.30pm – 8.00pm
