HBM Professional Development

Healthy Beginnings Montessori is excited to announce that we are now offering professional staff development seminars and workshops. Our goal is to provide affordable, hands-on, practical instruction that addresses the challenges of Montessori education in the modern age. Through our training, we empower and inspire adults for 21st century thinking.

As educational professionals it’s more important than ever to keep up to date with information, developments and issues that influence our students, classrooms and school. We strongly believe anyone working within the field of education desires to be of service to their profession. For this reason, we offer a variety of learning opportunities specifically for teachers and administrators at all levels of experience.
