From Chaos to Calm: Normalization Course

Students Say:

“Child Development — This course, for me, has reaffirmed the value of the importance of the adult’s understanding of the child, as a whole. When the adults understand how a child learns and develops, it will make a big difference in a child’s life, and in the whole society.

“Child Development — The course was better than I expected. The course just opens your appetite. Website was user friendly and easy to follow. The knowledge obtained is priceless. Most important, I had a great mentor who is patient and transmits a lot of joy in guiding us. Great course!”

How Much Freedom, How Much Discipline? Course

Students from Our How Much Freedom, How Much Discipline? Course Say:

“I really enjoyed the practical examples and spiritual understanding – really touched my heart.”

“The brevity of my early child development career has only just begun to educate me on the principles of human education. What a gift to those who can experience Montessori education for the greater pallet of experiences and liberty allowed for growth. I did not know how essential order was for children, but I know that I find comfort in order in my life. I find it quite astounding that there is a classroom where the visual demonstrations of our human tendencies and their various stages can be seen.”
