You will learn how to guide healthy growth and development during the child’s very important early years. The child between the ages of 0 to 3 requires a safe, engaging, and nurturing prepared environment to develop trust in themselves and their world. By offering age-appropriate activities and gentle feedback, you as the Montessori guide will help to build the child’s confidence in their evolving and emerging abilities, developing coordination and language skills, and guiding them to gain their independence in daily tasks and activities.
