Theme of the conference
“The true nature of a Montessori school”
What are the essential attitudes that define Montessori?
How do these attitudes inform leadership within our schools?
We distilled the Montessori school to its essential characteristics and at the same time we reminded ourselves that school is more than the sum of its parts - it is a living organic system. We learned how to better nurture and guide our schools as they evolve and develop. We explored current best thinking on leadership together. We looked at the congruency between Montessori pedagogical principles and the new leadership frameworks that see organizations as living organic systems.
