Instructional video series by Margaret Homfray who was trained and authorised by Dr Maria Montessori herself. These are definitely worth watching. This link takes you away from our website where you can view the complete series of presentations. Miss Homfray worked closely with Dr Montessori for many years so these video presentations are a very valuable resource.
