  • Help to Life: Why Every Parent and Caregiver Needs to Understand the Stages of Development


Presented by: Mary Ellen Maunz, M.Ed., Founder and Program Director, Age of Montessori

Many childhood behaviors (and misbehaviors) are rooted in spontaneous actions that show themselves during different developmental stages.

When we do not understand and support development, we see children fiercely defending what their inner teacher wants and needs to accomplish.

The more you know about these stages, the better you can work with your child and keep a calmer home or classroom. Join us as we review the major stages of early childhood.
