I have been working in the Nursery Class of a Montessori school for a number of years and since beginning this course, I have been able to compare what I’ve been doing to the recommendations and suggestions contained in the pages of the Classroom Guide. I am so excited to start putting these ‘new ideas’ into practice. I now have valuable information to include in my weekly meetings with my team of assistants, which stands as a perfect reminder of how to bring out the best of a situation, and set each child up for success — which is surely the goal of each and every Montessori teacher. The information I have been studying is presented on such good quality paper, in a manual that is so inviting and user friendly. I have found that this makes for easier reference, and it certainly makes it easier to retain the information.
