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

"Guided By Nature": International Montessori Congress 2013 Conference July 31-Aug 3 | Montessori Education in Canada | 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.

yes, mr feld....creativity and business are so inter related now and obvious and the mot de la mode.... but it does spring from a childhood that has been nurtured in an environment that lets the child experience freedom,limitations,creativity with humbleness and a behavior with responsibilities and a sense of impact..traits of a budding entrepreneur?
