Dear Maria Montessori Education Foundation Supporters
MMEF AlumniWith the graduating MMEF students in mind we are forming an MMEF Alumni and will be extending the invitation to all AMI Diploma holders in New Zealand. For a variety of reasons memberships expire as one’s period of study ends, therefore we felt this may be the ideal opportunity for past AMI graduates to re-join AMI and stay abreast with the activities of the International Montessori community. Information has now been sent out to all schools, however if you have been missed and would like to know more please email Cathy at firstname.lastname@example.org
Storage for MMEF Course Materials – can you assist?After the January module, from Thursday January 20th to be precise, we will be seeking storage for the MMEF course materials and shelves – do you know of anyone who may be able to assist us?
We have 12 shelf units which together are 3.5 metres in length and approximately 1.3 metres wide. There are additional storage boxes and equipment which all sit very securely on top of the shelves – all in all about 6 cubic metres is the space we are seeking.
We are looking into a number of options also, though it never hurts to throw the net far and wide. If you know of anyone who may be able to assist us please contact Carol at email@example.com .
10th Early Childhood Convention – Christchurch 2011
present a workshop entitled “On the Path to Independence” at
the Early Childhood Convention in Christchurch,
April 26th – 29th.
This event occurs only every four years and attracts
approximately1200 attendees.It seemed too good an
opportunity to miss to spread the word about Montessori
a little wider.
Please let us know if you'll be there too!
Exciting news to share – watch this space!
We’ve listened to your feedback and hear the impact the change to funding will have and understand that another year will give many of you a chance to re-adjust financially. Also, after tireless juggling, MMEF will be able to offer the course over a shorter period of time.
Still the same amount of weeks - 24 weeks - in modules similar to the current course, still the work and study option and still with the 10 weeks of Observation Teaching Practice – all this over a 13 month period!
See the next MMEF news in the New Year for further exciting developments about the course!
