Abstract/Notes: The objective of this study is to discuss some methods that can be helpful for the development of Montessori as well as the Kindergarten Approach to Education. Our research work is based on an unstructured questionnaire and observation method. To imply adequate qualitative and quantitative data, we searched the goals and objectives of Kindergarten and Montessori education policy from local concerned institutions of West Bengal in India. Our field study was conducted on some villages of Midnapore and South 24 Parganas District of Bengal. Early childhood is a stage that requires an overall holistic development model. These two approaches deal with that, but there are some methods related to language and communication that can easily develop the quality of the approaches above. It is shown with projected lesson plans and timetable management. This study explores and discusses such methods and points out how these methods can bring changes to those approaches. This paper also inputs the Indian state education policy about it.

Abstract/Notes: Research involving children, deemed to have difficulties with conventional means of communication, can perpetuate reductive forms of representation of children’s knowledges and experiences. This article focuses on the possibilities and opportunities that visual and creative methods can offer to researching with children. Children advance their views in and through spontaneous and concrete forms of participation. Autonomy in aesthetic acts is central to this methodology; to explore practices that produce and reproduce presuppositions deriving from societal attitudes affecting research with children, their agency and self-presentation. This cross-cultural study was conducted in Central Italy and North West England: children contributed their perspectives and experiences through participation in a series of creative encounters resulting in aesthetic and embodied outcomes of sociological and educational significance. The study contributes to the debate on children’s autonomy and the value and quality of participation through artistic practice. Examples from the corpus of data, which includes a series of artefacts and over 900 photographs from each geo-cultural context, are presented. The study shows that it is possible to harmonise power imbalances in spaces of creative freedom, in research and education, where children’s choices and agency are respected.

Abstract/Notes: "...The opening event was the luncheon on September 14, at the Inside Inn, the great hotel inside the exposition gates. The immense dining room was jammed with 1,000 women, and many more would have come had there been possible space. San Francisco women flocked by the score in honor of the visiting delegates, whether keenly interested in the convention or not. Mrs. Fremont Older, wife of the editor of one of San Francisco's newspapers, was the toastmistress. Mrs. Belmont made the opening speech, sounding the keynote of the convention unmistakably clear. Other among the speakers were Dr. Yami Kim, of China; Mme. Maria Montessori, of Italy, and Mabel Taliaferro."

Abstract/Notes: Within no time, the children were reading; "[The school] thought I was a miracle worker," Sandi recalled. In 1974, in need of trained teachers for her school, she began the Southwestern Montessori Teacher Training Program, encouraged by Nancy McCormick Rambusch. In 2000, the American Montessori Society honored her with the Pioneer in Montessori Award, and in 2012, she was recognized by MACTE as part of their Wisdom of the Elders program. *Learn more about Sandi's legacy through video recordings at the AMS Archives: http:// hdl.handle.net/11134/20002:860272741.
