Montessori Book Order

If you are still considering attending the 0-3 Certificate Course or you would simply like to expand your Montessori book repertoire MMEF will be placing a book order on March 11th for:

The Child in the Family – NZ35

Education for a New World – NZ35

The Absorbent Mind – NZ39

The Child in the Family is a great source for parent evenings and this version of The Absorbent Mind contains the develop of language and the development of movement as pull out charts! (these are pure joy for book geeks!)

We are also taking orders for Understanding the Human Being by Dr Silvana Montanaro.

If we place an order for 10 books or more the cost can be capped at no more than $70. Yep, it’s not cheap but will be an on-going source of support and inspiration for parents of 0-3 aged children.

If you would like to place an order for any of the above please email no later than March 11th.

Books can paid for via internet banking. All prices include GST and freight.
