The Indaba Institute hosted the first ever Association Montessori Internationale (AMI) Assistants to Infancy (0-3) internationally accredited course in Southern Africa. The course was presented over a 12 month period. In August 2018 Indaba celebrated the successful completion of the course with the 22 graduates. Lectures focused on Early Childhood Development (ECD) and a comparative study of the child, family and community while exploring the relationship between these aspects and Montessori education.
