2024 Reconnect Series

SMTC is excited present The Reconnect Workshop Series for 2024 with four live online workshops, one in each of the 0-3, 3-6, 6-12 and 12-18 age-levels, with inspiring AMI Trainers from around the world.

The 3 hour workshops are designed to support educators to reconnect with important aspects of their practice, which we know are often challenging, in order to shine light on how Montessori guides can best aid those in their care though each stage of development.  

Each workshop is $90 plus GST. We offer a group discount for schools of 5 bookings for the price of 4; or 10 bookings for the price of 8. The bookings for the Reconnect Workshop Series can be across the age-levels. Please contact us to arrange group bookings at [email protected].

EYLF Integration Course: Aligning Authentic Montessori Practice with the EYLF

This practical course delivered online via zoom by AMI 3-6 Trainer, Amy Kirkham, is designed to help educators and educational leaders in early years and childcare settings enhance their skills and knowledge to fulfil the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) standards whilst staying true to authentic Montessori practice. 

Would you like to have more confidence with communicating how the Montessori approach meets and exceeds the EYLF standards?

Have you been disheartened or frustrated by hearing “you have to…” or ” the EYLF says you can’t…” resulting in less authenticity in your Montessori program?

Or perhaps you are unsure about how your Montessori practice can satisfy elements of the EYLF?

Join us online via zoom for two Monday evenings each term over the 2024 year, to explore the fusion of authentic Montessori principles and practice with the EYLF.

Commences Monday 19th February 2024 at 6.30pm AEDT.
