The first two weeks of Part I will take place onsite this autumn, October 31st to November 11th, 2022, at Montessoriskolan Lära för livet, Varberg, Sweden. We will present general Montessori theory and specifically the theory for 0-6 and 6-12. Montessoriskolan Lära för livet will provide us with a first-hand experience of these environments. Thus, the foundation will be laid for entering the third plane of development, 12-18 years and its characteristics and needs.

Having spent the two weeks this autumn on the foundation, getting to know the Montessori core principles, the remaining four weeks will take place onsite at The Montessori Centre for Work and Study, Rydet, Sätila, Sweden, June 26th to July 21st, 2023. This will consist of a residential experience on the land, doing the study and work of the adolescents and getting the everyday experience of an adolescent community.
