Uncovering the Universal Potential of Childhood II.

Online Montessori Conference

19–26 April, 2021

CONFERENCE STARTS IN

About the conference

Through her work, Maria Montessori found that all children have an unlimited, unbiased and profound potential through what she called the Absorbent Mind. This potential is so profound that the only limits to a child are the limits of the environment in which they live and play.  

In any environment for children under six years of age, the role of the adult is the most important. We can best aid the child by preparing ourselves intellectually and spiritually. As caregivers, role models and guides, we will explore at this conference how to best prepare an oasis of peace for children, whether in a school, home, community or a homeschooling family.

Our conference goes beyond just preparing the environment. It fosters an understanding of how the mind of the child works and what it needs in any culture or place.

Montessori is a powerful global movement. It can uncover the universal potential of every child around the world.

What makes this conference unique?

It's online!

Online speakers will share their wealth of knowledge in a more accessible way. This conference has the potential to reach people and communities that would otherwise find it difficult to attend a typical conference. As an added bonus, the presentations will be recorded and you will be able to watch them as many times as you wish for a small fee.

It's free!

During the conference, the presentations will be free for everyone. We believe that limited funds should not stop the powerful potential that comes from understanding the Montessori Method. All children deserve an oasis of peace provided by a loving guide. Continued access to the presentations will be available for purchase after the conference.

It's cultural!

Speakers from all over the world will come together to share their expertise and culture. Participants will experience the universal nature of the Montessori Method, including how it can be applied in a multitude of cultures. It is truly for all children.

It has amazing speakers

The list of speakers is just awesome. You can see so many world-known names, experienced Montessorians with decades of teaching and consulting at schools and with parents. Authors of best-selling books, international trainers, passionate teachers... We cannot thank enough each one of them for participating and sharing their knowledge with our audience.

Be part of a community

Our closed facebook group becomes very lively during the conference week. You can talk with other like-minded people, discuss your experience, ask questions. We believe you will find our community welcoming and helpful, with members from all over the world.

Help us to help

We will donate part of the profit from the conference to help Montessori schools who take care of children in less advantaged parts of the world. Because, as Nelson Mandela said, "education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world."

The conference is aimed at:

Parents

As a parent, you will learn more about Montessori philosophy, age-appropriate activities, and ways to prepare your home. You will learn how to adapt materials to your specific needs, family, and culture.

Teachers

As a teacher, you will learn ways to deepen your understanding of children and gain new ideas for preparing your environment. By seeing how Montessori is applied in various countries and cultures, you will appreciate the universal potential of each child.

School Administrators

A school administrator does not work directly with children but works to support them. At this conference, you will learn effective ways to better support your teachers and community.

"Whoever touches the life of a child, touches the most sensitive part of a whole which has roots in the most distant past and climbs toward the infinite future."
