Montessori Prenatal and Postnatal Course

Dr. Montessori noted that we should take care of an infants physical development as well as their psychic needs. Independence is one of the first developmental instinct of human beings. As parents, how can we ensure that we build a secure bond with our infants whilst nurturing their independence?  How can we support infants to develop in accordance with the laws of nature? What is educare? In these series of workshops, we will be discussing the above in the context of an infants daily routines such as changing clothes, bathing, feeding, sleeping, etc.  We are pleased to invite a Registered Chinese Medicine Practitioner and a Registered Nurse to share their expertise on prenatal and postnatal care as well as provide tips on practical health information for infants and expectant mothers.

Dr. Maria Montessori believes that adults must first prepare themselves before they can guide children. Therefore, Infinity Children’s World emphasizes the importance of teacher training and parent education. Regardless of differences in parents’ backgrounds, beliefs, and values, we believe that we can engage in respectful and constructive dialogue with parents regarding their children’s growth. In order to realize children’s potential and support healthy mental development, parents need to have a more accurate understanding of children and provide an appropriate environment for them to flourish. The goal of our parent education is to enhance parents' understanding of Montessori educational approach and make its theories applicable in everyday life.
