Refresh your Montessori knowledge
These advanced courses are an opportunity to refresh and revive your Montessori training and to connect with fellow Montessorians. The AMI Refreshers are on a different topic each time but always focus on key elements of the Montessori approach.
AMI Refresher courses are open to those who hold a Montessori Diploma (see each course for details).

AMI Refresher 3-6
AMI Refresher 3-6: The Art of Writing – 19th and 20th November 2021
“The first written word written by my little ones fills them with unspeakable happiness. They see spring into being from themselves a skill which seems to them to be a gift of nature, for they cannot connect what they are doing with the preparatory acts which led up to this particular action.”
Montessori gave us such clear guidance about how to prepare the child’s pathway to writing – a pathway that led to the infamous ‘explosion into writing’ as described in the Discovery of the Child.
When writing, do the children in your class experience what Montessori described as ‘unspeakable happiness’ and feel as if they have been given a ‘gift of nature’? Or do you find yourself constantly thinking of ways to persuade them to write? Perhaps you are not considering every aspect of the indirect pathway that leads to the ‘explosion into writing’? Perhaps you have forgotten why some parts of the pathway are important?
Join us for a two-day AMI Refresher course this November to refresh your understanding of how Montessori can support children to develop beautiful handwriting skills in order to express their ideas creatively.
Come and refresh your practice, meet up with old friends and make some new ones! There will be theory, practice, a light lunch and a little neuroscience.
