Our first adult educational workshop is coming up in a couple of weeks.
- Montessori 101
- Thursday, October 5th
- 6:00 to 7:30 PM
This event will be held at the Jacksonville campus and is open to the public so if you know people who are interested in Montessori, invite them! They are welcome to come.
Limited childcare is available for this event from 6-7:30 PM for Namaste students ages 3 and older, please let us know ASAP if you need childcare.
The purpose of this first education night is to give a general overview of Montessori philosophy and the discoveries Dr. Maria Montessori made over 100 years ago that are repeatedly proven true in modern psychology and neuroscience. We will share the needs and characteristics of the child at each stage of development from birth to 12 years, and some of the ways the environment and the adults here at Namaste serve the child at each age.
Montessori philosophy is a radically progressive form of education based in scientific observation of children at each stage of development. The environment is designed to engage and inspire the child, and the adults are trained to guide the child toward their individual potential.
There is so much depth to the work we do and we are so excited to share with you about how this method manifests at our school!
