The first plane of development is a time of tremendous growth and development and includes a sensitive period for language and communication. During this plane, Dr. Montessori directed adults to observe, listen, and create a unique and supportive environment. This workshop will explore the role of both the child and adult during this developmental period, specifically in regards to language development and communication. You will leave with new perspectives and tools for interacting and communicating with the children in your environment.
