"Guided By Nature": International Montessori Congress 2013 Conference July 31-Aug 3

"Guided By Nature": International Montessori Congress 2013 Conference July 31-Aug 3 | We Need Montessori | Scoop.it

The 2013 International Montessori Congress will allow us to look closer at how Montessori education is guided by children’s natural development and how that growth fosters a respectful relationship with the environment. The Congress theme, “Montessori: Guided By Nature”, takes root in that dynamic relationship and celebrates that we are all uniquely tied to the physical and ecological makeup of our surroundings.
