In October 2014, the Sustainability Institute partnered with Association Montessori Internationale (AMI) to deliver the first Assistants to Infancy (0-3) introduction in South Africa, taught by AMI trainer, Julia Hilson. 45 participants attended, 23 of whom were fully funded by grant funding from Cape Classics in order to serve teachers coming from communities serving the poorest of the poor. There was strong support amongst the participants for a full-time course. The first full-time Assistants to Infancy (0-3) accredited course will be hosted in 2017.
