The Basics: Eating, Sleeping, Toilet Training
THURSDAY, JANUARY 28 at 8 P.M.
Every day with a little one is spent immersed in the most basic tasks: eating, sleeping and going to the bathroom. Gladwyne Montessori is here to help you take on these sometimes daunting challenges with expert guidance and mentorship! Our fully credentialed presenters will discuss picky eating, sleep training and intrinsic reward-based toilet learning strategies. We’ll also be talking about socialization and how to overcome the obstacles and isolation of our COVID-19 realities. Recommended for caretakers of infants and toddlers.
Building Baby's Brain
THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 25 at 8 P.M.
Do you sometimes find yourself running out of ideas for how to keep your infant or toddler stimulated? Cognitive growth and developmental stages in infants and toddlers can feel intimidating and often parents feel they are failing to do enough to keep their children moving forward. Join our panel of Montessori credentialed experts to discuss your baby’s brain and better understand how they comprehend the world around them. Sometimes, all it takes is a change in your perspective! Recommended for caretakers of infants & toddlers.
Managing Misbehavior (Montessori-style!)
THURSDAY, March 25 at 8 P.M.
Does your child sometimes “act out” in a way you just don’t know how to handle? Join us for this virtual workshop on managing misbehavior! Our child development experts will discuss different conflict scenarios, possible solutions and the underlying reasons your child may be behaving in a particular way. This workshop will also include a live Q&A where our expert panelists answer your questions on how to manage specific behaviors your child may be exhibiting!
Positive Discipline for Pre-kindergarten
THURSDAY, APRIL 29 at 8 P.M.
As your little one gains confidence and independence, he or she is bound to test your limits in new and exciting ways! In this workshop, our child development experts will discuss how to meet this challenge with warmth while maintaining control of the situation using real life scenarios and coping strategies. When properly implemented, positive discipline is the most effective way to instill a sense of accountability in your child, helping him or her understand the natural cause and effect of their actions in a gentle, nurturing way. Attendees can also share specific scenarios with our panelists that we will spend time troubleshooting during the session. Recommended for caregivers of children ages 2 to 6 years old.
Positive Discipline for Kindergarten and Beyond
THURSDAY, May 27 at 8 P.M.
Once your child begins school, he or she will become more socially aware of him or herself. In this workshop, our child development experts will discuss how to guide your child through these elementary years and give them a solid understanding of the effect their actions have on their community. Implementing positive discipline strategies during this stage of your child’s development helps you get ahead of the major turn he or she will take in adolescence when behaviors have the potential to be unbelievably challenging. Attendees are also invited to share specific scenarios with our panelists that we will spend time troubleshooting during the session. Recommended for caregivers of children ages 5 to 12 years old.
