Montessori Education UK Conference

Saturday 13th May 2017

'Harmonious Development of the Child'

Montessori made discoveries based on her observations in Children's Houses that were ground-breaking in her time. Some of the latest research on movement, cognition and attention demonstrates that Montessori is not only still relevant today but that, perhaps, modern science is just starting to catch up.

Speakers: Dr Annette M Haines and Alex Shepherd
