Love, the Passageway to Normalization

Presenter: Mary Ellen Maunz, M.Ed.

In Montessori terms, normalization is that wondrous state when a young child becomes centered through intense concentration. It opens up a new world of joy and learning for the child, and often represents a major shift from chaos to calm.

This webinar will talk about the conditions and the attitudes that help bring about normalization, including the vital ability “to see the child that is not yet there.”


Technical Note: Audio connection echoes occasionally, but the practical and helpful discussions make listening worthwhile.

    Such a great refresher on taking the time to love and understand the individual child and guiding them to normalization

    I found the content to be very helpful in teaching me about how many different children learn in the Montessori classroom. I enjoyed the pictures of the classrooms from around the world.
