Qianyu Li took the Montessori AMI training 3 to 6 at the Montessori Institute of San Diego. Ever since then her perception about education has been transformed, and she continues to be amazed by the beauty and efficacy of this profound approach to child education. The training not only equipped her with many presentations, it has also given her a new perspective to see education as an essential support for life to blossom. It has helped her immensely to re-position herself as an assistant to the unfolding of a child’s life.
