AMI Montessori Workshop: Child development 0-3

16 June 2017, 08:00 - 18 June 2017, 17:00


Come to a series of practical workshop sessions for supporting child development between 0 and 3 years of age, for teachers and parents. Time will be allotted to practical work on preparing environment, introducing language, making materials and developing observation skills. No previous Montessori training is required.


Vanessa Fichtl is a mother of two daughters, works, and lives in Dortmund, Germany. While trying to find childcare for her eldest daughter she was introduced to the Montessori Educational System and found her own beliefs mirrored many of those found within the pedagogical method. She started to work in Montessori schools in 2007 and holds an AMI Assistants to Infancy Diploma from The Montessori Institute Denver since 2009. She regularly attends conferences, workshops and trainings over the Montessori Pedagogy, including Paediatrics and Neurological Research on a regular basis. In 2013, Vanessa opened her own Montessori Children’s House in Dortmund. Her wish to actively promote the Montessori Pedagogy for children under three years of age while making it more accessible in Germany helped her along the path to founding the AMI Certified Montessori Training Centre – Montessori Institute Dortmund.
