My name is Jessica Scrimes. I have a Montessori AMI Diploma 0-3 from Sydney, Australia. I live and work (with my husband and three children) in Zurich, Switzerland.
This website is for Montessori 0-3. As a source for all AMI 0-3 “Assistants to Infancy”. A clearinghouse – for ‘what’s new’ in the 0-3 community. And a resource – inspiration, ideas, events, links.
The Montessori “Assistants to Infancy Diploma” is The study of Montessori pedagogy and current medical and psychological approaches to child development from birth to three years.
We are trained from conception to age 3, to work with expecting families, newborns, infants, toddlers, their parents and carers, not as ‘midwives’ or as ‘doctors’ but as ‘assistants’ to help provide optimal prepared environments for the development of the child.
Although many of us work in childcare settings….we are trained to work also in the home and in community environments, beyond the limits of childcare, to wherever small human beings are found…
