Inclusion in Montessori


In our hearts, we want to make sure that our classrooms are places for all children. In practice, this may be challenging. This online professional development bundle offers a collection of resources that will help you prepare an environment welcoming to all the students we encounter in our Montessori environments, including those with learning differences. They also address common concerns around inclusive classrooms, best practices, and tangible solutions.
