It’s one thing to know the Montessori principles, quite another to apply them at home. If you’re interested in getting more practical knowledge in this area, then these seminars might be just what you need.

Ylenia Maitino is eager to share her knowledge and experience with you and will organise four seminars (1h30 each) throughout this academic year. These seminars are open to anyone who might be interested in applying the Montessori principles at home.
