Maria Montessori

Montessori education offers a unique experience designed to help your child maximize her potential; an educational environment that is purposefully designed to meet her unique developmental needs and adults who are specifically trained to observe and put her in touch with exactly what she needs at that very moment to learn.
A school is a group of people who come together with a common purpose; education is the experience that your child has with these people. AMI Montessori schools work diligently to provide a positive and formative experience that will serve her now and for the rest of her life.

Parent Effectiveness Training

Successful parenting requires hard work and dedication because it is perhaps the most important responsibility in one’s life. Unfortunately it is also the one that we are the least prepared for! Being a parent doesn't always mean that you automatically or instinctively know what to do.
The course in Parent Effectiveness Training (PET) focuses on teaching parents practical communication skills to assist them in their parenting, whether they're the parent of a toddler or a teenager.

“If you are reading this, the chances are that you have a child who is struggling at school. Maybe he or she is finding it difficult to master skills such as reading, writing, maths or spelling. Maybe he or she can do all these things but comes home with reports about unfinished work,or work left at home.

The teacher complains about her being disorganised, untidy or even aggressive towards other children. Or maybe she is described as being unfocused and a daydreamer who never seems to listen. And maybe you agree with the teacher because you see the same behaviour at home.
Labels such as ADHD, Dyslexia, Auditory Processing Problems, Sensory Processing Disorder are mentioned. What’s going on?
