The period from birth to age six provides the child’s best opportunity for success. Language, movement, independence, self-discipline, and social coherence are the unifying principles that address the development of the child under six. Molly O’Shaughnessey and her staff will describe a school that brings together and supports the interdependence, diversity, and empowerment of the families it serves. Silvia Dubovoy, trainer at both A-I and primary levels, will speak to the transitions, common threads, and contrasting psychological characteristics between the birth to six levels. Topics of interest for both birth to three and primary guides are Montessori all day/all year, joyful engagement, and toileting awareness.
