Early Childhood Best Practice Conference


This national event brings together Montessori educators and leaders to discover not only how to implement best practices to support the children in our classrooms, but to bring out the best in ourselves as educators. You’ll be empowered with practical skills, thought-changing revelations, and shared experiences from your peers. We look forward to seeing you on the Gold Coast in March.
