AMI REFRESHER COURSE 2019 – The Art and Science of Observation
Observation of the child is the foundation on which the entire Montessori approach rests. It is only through observation that we can elucidate the child’s inner drives and ‘provide motives for activity so well adapted to the child’s interest that they provoke his deep attention’.
