Nurturing Spiritual Growth in Pre-Verbal Children

Babies and young children are well known for their natural disposition to recognize the transcendent. This workshop is founded in Maria Montessori’s style of learning. Maria Montessori- well known as the first female physician in Italy who founded the revolutionary pedagogical approach named for her, was a deeply religious person. She taught that babies have a postnatal embryonic period of spiritual growth and development in their first three years of life. Grounded in her theory, participants will explore real-world opportunities to support, recognize, and celebrate a child’s spiritual development.
