We are in an unprecedented situation where innovation and creativity are needed as families discover new ways to work, learn and grow together. While it is important that your child's education continues, it is also essential that we maintain equilibrium and set realistic expectations for these circumstances. After being home for a few weeks, you may be craving connection and guidance from an expert Montessorian. Join us for an interactive and informative webinar with Margaret Whitley!  

Key Takeaways: 

-Remember the importance of self-care and putting on our own oxygen masks. 

-What are the developmental characteristics from birth to 12 that can help guide your parenting approach?

-How can you supplement at home and foster independence during this time?
