Here’s what previous attendees said…

image* The AMI Assistants Course was an intense nine days during the school holidays but I came away with ideas and resources that I could use as soon as I returned to school.

* The course was packed full of information, I felt that I came away with a much better understanding of the Montessori philosophy, in particular how everything links together, for example; the physical and the psychological – I feel like a have a much better understanding of what holistic actually means. I found the practical side very beneficial and now feel confident in pulling groups of different ages together.

* One of the highlights of the course was the camaraderie of the group and being able to share ideas.

* I recommend the course to anyone wanting to find out more about the Montessori philosophy or those who need a refresher and rejuvenation! “

Don’t delay!  Book today! (Remember, Early-Bird Discount ends Friday.)
