"Our children are growing up in a world that requires good executive function, if they are to exercise self-control, think creatively and adjust flexibly to change. Research tells us that these are the very skills that are promoted in a Montessori environment."
Drawing on current research, including her own, Louise will talk about the role of movement in developing executive function, reflecting on how Montessori practitioners might hone their approach to helping children gain good control of the way they move their bodies to interact successfully with their environment.
Louise is an AMI trainer with many years of experience working with children in Montessori environments and is currently director of training at the Maria Montessori Institute, London.
