Uncovering the

Universal Potential

of Childhood III.

Online Montessori Conference

15–21 November, 2021


The conference is now over. Thank you so much for joining us!

The conference is now over! What a journey ❤️. I hope you took full advantage of these amazing free lectures and you are full of inspiration, new knowledge and insight. 

Don't forget - knowledge is only powerful if you are actually using it in practice with your children. Allow yourself time, try a couple of things you learned, give yourself grace if you make mistakes! Have the courage to be imperfect. And keep on learning!

Thank you so much again for joining us. We are receiving beautiful feedback and we are so energized by it! It really makes us so happy to see so many people affected in a positive way. See you next time!

They say that third time's a charm! 

This is our third time organizing the conference Childhood Potential and we are still very excited about spreading the Montessori message. That is why we keep the event FREE for everyone to join.

We truly believe that limited funds should not stop anyone from learning and discovering the potential of the Montessori Method. We believe that a prepared adult is a key to Montessori and we want to share the wisdom and experience of our dear speakers with as many parents and educators as we can - across the globe, we are on this Montessori journey together!

Caring Begins With Self-Care

The conference is aimed at:


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.


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.

What makes this conference unique?

It's FREE!

During the conference, the presentations will be free for everyone to watch! We believe that limited funds should not stop the powerful potential that comes from understanding the Montessori Method.

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.

It's cultural!

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

It has amazing speakers

Our speakers are experienced Montessorians with decades of teaching and consulting, authors of best-selling books, international trainers or 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."

 “Education is a natural process carried out by the child and is not acquired by listening to words but by experiences in the environment.”

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.

Share the conference with your friends!
