Experiences and Tips on Distance Teaching

As lockdowns resume, schools are trying to support parents and children in different yet important ways through remote instruction. Join us to learn basic principles and ideas for practicing Montessori educational experiences even while we are home from teachers who have practiced various types of Montessori education this year.

  • Just like every child is different, different families will have different needs
  • Flexibility is key
  • Active learning is still important
  • Reducing cognitive load
