About the Workshop:

“We believe a person is disciplined when he is master of himself and is able to control himself when he needs to. This is the discipline we strive to support.” (Montessori)

But what does this actually mean and what might it look like? What do we do when others have a different view of how this might be reached? Come along to this workshop to discuss when, how and if we need to intervene, redirect or allow the children time to work this out for themselves.
