Welcome to the Resource Library! I invite you to browse my educational resources. You will find educational resources that support a child’s development in many different areas: math, language, practical life skills, logical thinking, sensory development, fine motor and more.
I also included practical life food preparation PDFs to help you plan your activities and gather helpful tools. You will find a printable with an example of a daily rhythm of a Forest School to get you inspired and a guide on how to find a guide on how to choose a Montessori school for your child.
You will find the links to enroll in two courses for free: The Best Start in Life: Early Childhood Development for Sustainable Development and The Science of Learning – What Every Teacher Should Know

What does a successful early childhood care program look like?
How has a child’s brain developed at the age of 3?
How does nutrition impact the future well-being of a child into adulthood?
Learn the answers to these questions and more in “The Best Start in Life: Early Childhood Development for Sustainable Development”.
With leading experts in the field – hailing from Harvard University, New York University and UNICEF, among other institutions – you’ll explore how neuroscience, sociology, anthropology and other studies have influenced understanding of early childhood development.
This course is for:
Graduate students and advanced undergraduate students who are interested in the key concepts and practices in early childhood development.
Teachers interested in the societal and biological factors impacting the children they support.
A teaching course for K-12 teachers about the science of learning and how to use current research to improve classroom outcomes.
This education course will show you, through current research, how we learn — the way our brain makes, stores, and retrieves memories.
You will examine common misconceptions and misunderstandings about learning that can prevent students from learning at their fullest capacity.
Along the way you will explore the practical implications of cognitive science for classroom teaching in terms of choosing effective instructional strategies, developing useful assessments, motivating student effort, and designing learner-centered curricular units.
This course is aimed to enhance the practice of K-12 teachers.
