Talking Montessori is a series of widely attended webinars hosted by the Montessori Group with the aim of uniting people across the global Montessori Community. The webinars feature a variety of guests from the Montessori and Early Years sectors in conversations around current topics.

While some webinars are more suitable for those working in Montessori education and the early years sector, others cover subject matter that is broader in appeal; for these we welcome parents, and anyone interested in the subject matter.


How to attend

The webinars are conducted via Zoom, the links to meetings can be found below.

If you are unable to attend the webinar, don’t worry. Most of our webinars are also published to the Montessori Centre International Facebook page, or linked at the bottom of this page for you to view at your convenience.
