Discover the astonishing characteristics and power of the
Absorbent Mind of the child under six. Learn how the
Montessori classroom along with the prepared home
environment can best support the sensitive periods of
development of a child from birth-to-six years.
Social and Emotional
Development in Young Children
Young children are naturally egocentric beings, for this is
one of nature's ways of providing for the Child's needs.
However, as they grow, the Absorbent Mind provides
opportunities for fine-tuning their social interactions into
gracious manners that are reflective of their culture.
We will explore how the important role of the adults in the
young child's life, through mindful modeling and gentle
guidance, supports the natural unfolding and acquisition of
these vital social skills that result in generous,
respectful and compassionate beings.
