2016 AMI 0-3/3-6 Refresher Course
Sensorial Education – a Foundation for the Intelligence
Everything that we understand about our world comes to us initially through our senses. Children are naturally drawn to use their senses for exploration in the first years of life and in doing this they build a mind that perceives all of the nuances of the world around them clearly.
This AMI Refresher course is offered at 2 different levels with individual programmes for 0-3 AMI Diploma holders and 3-6 AMI Diploma holders. At each level we will revisit the principles of how we offer Sensorial experiences to children of this particular age so we can reflect on these in terms of our practice.
