Montessori Teacher Training Diploma Courses
Montessori is a method of education that is based on the child’s self-directed activity. In Montessori, the child tends to have hands-on learning and collaborative play. In Montessori the child is free to select their activities from their prepared environment. A Montessori trained teacher will be available in the classroom to guide the process of learning. Child work individually or work in group to explore knowledge and develop their potential.
Montessori Classrooms are crafted environments in which activities are placed age-appropriate. Dr.Maria Montessori believed that these type of classroom will help the child to get deeper understanding about language, mathematics, science, music and much more. Every material placed in the Montessori classroom supports in the child’s potential development.
Dr. Maria Montessori (1870-1952) was an Italian physician and anthropologist who devoted her life to understanding how children develop socially, intellectually, physically, and spiritually. By carefully observing children all over the world, she discovered universal patterns of development which are found in all children regardless of their culture or the era in which they live.
Dr. Montessori was one of the first women to be granted a diploma as a physician in Italy. Following her interest in human development, she assisted at a clinic for children with mental illnesses. She later directed the Orthophrenic School in Rome for children with physical, mental and emotional challenges. During this time Dr. Montessori lectured throughout Europe concerning the needs of children and their value to the future of our societies. She stressed the need to change our attitudes about children and their treatment.
