Video contest winners announced!

Oh yes, the video contest is over and we have winners!!!

We had many wonderful entries and while we planned on only awarding a first and second place prize, we were so moved by some of the other entries that we decided we had to mention three others.

So, for the next five days, we'll announce a different winner each day in this blog post and on our social channels.

Our Trademark was issued today!

Wow!! This is a huge accomplishment for us. Months ago, we applied for a trademark on the name Maitri Learning. We did this all by ourselves (no lawyer at all) by reading the fine print and following the instructions on the USPTO website.

Today, we received the notification that the trademark has been issued! So keep your eyes out for that beautiful little ® next to our name.

It's amazing to think about how far we've come from a one-woman, at home business to the thriving eco-happy, fair-wage, family forward small business that we are today.

Thanks for being a part of our growth story!

Neurodevelopment of Socialization in Shanghai!

Julia is honored to be a keynote speaker at the Zion Education Group's annual Professional Development conference in Shanghai, China. This group has been working for years to implement high quality Montessori programs. Their work is unprecedented. 

In light of all the struggles people are facing socially post-COVID, they are particularly focused on the social development of the child. Julia's talk will take a neurodevelopmental look at socialization and emotional development. She is very excited to bring the neurodevelopmental word to China!

Thank you to the Zion Education Group and Mary Macintosh for putting this together.

AMI Training in Boston this summer!

We're so happy to announce that the AMI early childhood training program is returning to the Boston area this summer!!

Are you interested in a neurodevelopmentally-based educational method for early childhood? This is what you need. No more creating new lesson plans each week. No more requiring children to do the same thing at the same time. No more punishments and rewards. Instead, you can inspire children to meet their full developmental potential by following the scientific method for education (also known as the Montessori method). 

Don’t miss this chance to get the internationally-renowned Montessori training you need to fully prepare yourself for the work ahead. Nurturing the developmental potentials of children requires a deep preparation by the adult. This training will give you just that. You won’t be sorry!

Visit the Montessori Training Center Northeast for details.
