Family event at childhood museum to explore benefits of Montessori approach

Article By: Sue Learner, News Editor

Montessori St Nicholas is holding a Montessori for Families Event at the V&A Museum of Childhood, so families can explore how the approach can benefit child development.

The event in Bethnal Green, London, which is on Sunday 27 October from 11am to 4pm, will show parents useful techniques to use at home to help children experience Montessori learning.

Philip Bujak, chief executive of Montessori St Nicholas said: “We are delighted to be working with the V&A Museum of Childhood. It is a fantastic, childhood-related museum, servicing families and children in a socially deprived area of London.

“Our partnership with the museum forms part of our national parenting strategy.

“We are actively extending our reach beyond the Montessori schools community and want to encourage as many parents as possible, up and down the country, to access the benefits of Montessori with their children.”

The event at the museum is part of a wider partnership with Montessori St Nicholas. The charity has funded four Montessori Family Packs for the under fives to encourage families to interact with displays and enjoy learning together.

The charity is also funding two free six week parenting workshops at the museum in January and November 2014.

The charity launched a new Community Manifesto 2012-2015 last year which includes a comprehensive national parenting strategy. The parenting strategy supports disadvantaged communities and families around the country.

Other projects include a Teenage Pregnancy Project in Bristol where they are doing a Montessori Foundation Certificate course, a new Montessori for Childminders course and three Community Interest companies.

Montessori currently funds state primary schools with plans for a fifth.
