Tuning to Toddler Guidance

In order to be kind and effective guides, we will seek to better understand the toddler's point of view. Together we will wonder how toddlers understand and engage with the world. We will consider Montessori's writings on the development of the will and the spiritual needs of the child as well as how current research is illumnating the inner life of our youngest children. With this understanding of development, we will consider guidance practicies for the toddler community. UGB (3)
