* Recheck/refresh this schedule on Saturday morning to see what rooms your desired sessions are in. We continue to change room assignments based on the level of interest in each session.

* Use one seat and move to the middle. Every seat will be used in the auditorium and likely in many breakout sessions as well. Please allow as many to sit as possible by using one seat and moving to the middle of a row of seats so others may sit down without climbing over you.

* Be patient. No matter how hard we try, history tells us that some breakout sessions will end up being standing room only for fill up completely.  Please understand that we are trying our very best to make this a productive and enjoyable learning opportunity for you and as many of your fellow Montessorians as possible. Your patience will help the most people receive the most benefit from this conference.

Featured Speaker - Julia Volkman: The Four Planes of Neurodevelopment

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

What is this world (Plane 1)? Why is the world the way it is (Plane 2)? Who am I and what do I believe (Plane 3)?  What is my place in the world (Plane 4)? These are the key questions Dr. Montessori believed that children are biologically driven to answer at different ages. But, are Montessori's planes of development supported by current research? We'll take a look at key research studies and how they relate to Montessori's original theory. Get ready to be refreshed, inspired, and armed with helpful information!
