7th European Nienhuis Montessori Retreat

We are very pleased to announce our 7th European Nienhuis Montessori Retreat, which will take place in Zelhem, The Netherlands from 9-10-11 November 2018 at the head office of Nienhuis Montessori. This year's theme is 'A journey through the stages of development'.

Every year in many countries Montessori conferences and refresher courses are being organised by national and European Montessori Associations. Of course all these events are very valuable for extending people’s knowledge of Montessori education and exchanging experiences and ideas.

Nienhuis Montessori has been organising the so-called Nienhuis Montessori Days, together with many experienced Montessorians. These montessori days has been organised in several countries like The Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland, South Tirol (I), Poland and Czech Republic. Mostly on a national level. These days have become more and more popular. The main reason for this increasing popularity probably is the quality of the programme and the affordable price of these days. We have always had the support of many AMI trainers, AMI trained teachers or very experienced Montessorians with another background. One of these persons is living in The Netherlands, namely Patricia Wallner, AMI trainer 0 – 3.

Nienhuis Montessori had the first experience of a new event format, namely an European forum for sharing and conversation. The main idea was to gather, share and exchange experiences and ideas in an informal setting and to extends people knowledge of Montessori education. The name chosen for this Montessori event was Montessori Retreat.

Because of its enormous success and very positive feedback, we planned the 7th edition of this event. Patricia Wallner is one of the initiators, and she is going to speak and lecture again during this 7th edition. Next to Patricia, Madlena Ulrich, AMI trainer 3 – 6 from Norway and Carla Foster, AMI trainer 6 – 12 will be there to make a considerable contribution. Finally, Jenny Marie wil be there during the 7th edition. Jenny Marie Höglund holds AMI diplomas for the ages 3-6 and 6-12. She has mainly worked with the 6-12 and 12-18 (adolescents). She also holds a M.Ed. and she is an established AMI Elementary trainer.
