Aid to Life – http://aidtolife.orgThe Aid to Life Initiative is founded on the idea that children develop optimally when they are brought up in an environment that supports their natural development, with an adult who understands how to connect them to positive activity and then allows them enough time to grow and develop according to their own pace and rhythm. It aims to give parents clear, simple, straightforward advice in a format that is easy to understand and apply.
Association Montessori Internationale – http://montessori-ami.org A.M.I.was founded in 1929 by Dr Maria Montessori and is recognised as the international authority on Montessori philosophy and pedagogy providing a leading voice regarding the unique nature of childhood, natural human development and the rights of the child.
Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) – http://www.oecd.org/Education begins at home. The first simple word a parent speaks to an infant opens the world of language to the child and sets the child on the path of exploration and discovery. When formal schooling begins, many parents believe that their role as educators has ended. But education is a shared responsibility of parents, schools, teachers, and various institutions in the economy and in society. New findings from the OECD’s Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) show that parental involvement in education is pivotal for the success of children throughout their school years and beyond.
