Parent Education Programme

8-hr Parent Education Foundation Class

Cantonese : 18/7/2020 & 29/8/2020 (Sat)9:00am-1:00pm 

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.
