Guiding Growth: From Toddler to Preschooler

Welcome to another enlightening live event with Simone Davies. In this live discussion, we dive deep into the fascinating world of Montessori education and child development. Join us as we explore the journey from toddlerhood to preschool and uncover the secrets behind nurturing a child’s potential. 

Exploring Child Development

Unraveling the mysteries of child development, Simone elaborates on the concept of planes of development proposed by Dr. Maria Montessori. From the absorbent mind of infancy to the conscious absorbent mind of preschoolers, children undergo remarkable changes in their cognitive and emotional development.

Supporting Children in Transition

The discussion delves into practical strategies for supporting children transitioning from toddlerhood to preschool. From fostering social-emotional skills through peer interactions to providing sensorial learning experiences, the emphasis is on creating a supportive environment that nurtures holistic growth.

Encouraging Willful Development

The conversation touches upon the spontaneous will of children and the role of adults in guiding and shaping their behavior. By setting clear limits, fostering emotional safety, and gradually empowering children to internalize rules and agreements, we pave the way for their self-discipline and independence.
