Welcome to the World of Montessori Online Conference

Welcome to the World of Montessori - join us for a free online Montessori conference January 5, 6, 7th 2018!

Join us for a FREE online Montessori Conference January 5, 6, and 7th 2018! 

Welcome to the World of Montessori! There is so much to discover when you are first learning about Montessori that it can seem completely overwhelming. In Montessori 101, the Facebook group that I co-admin with some amazing Montessorians, we strive to help everyone understand the beauty of the Montessori method, no matter where they are in their journey. 

Still, it can be hard to really learn Montessori basics in such a dynamic, fast paced environment. Also, the internet is so overrun with Montessori and Montessori inspired ideas that it can be difficult to get to the bottom of what Montessori really is all about.


On January 5th we will open up our first ever FREE Montessori conference. For 3 days we will talk  Montessori basics including about the history of Montessori, how Montessori works in schools and how Montessori looks and feels at home. The conference will take place in a closed Facebook group, include live videos and engaging discussions, and some extra resources for you to explore on your own! 

Come join us and discover everything Montessori has to offer!
