AMI 3-6 trained Montessori guide

"The course experience helped me recall my own time of sports played in my earlier years and has brought a desire to start including sports in my daily lifestyle. It also inspired me to plan sports activities for children in my Montessori school myself." 

AMI 0-3 trained Montessori guide 
school administrator

"I was of the opinion that sports can't be introduced to primary school children. The way sports can be introduced on primary level was an eye opener."
