This 100% online course is for those who work in a Montessori environment as a support person to the main Montessori guide.
The course may be studied at any time within 1 year from the date of enrolment.
Throughout the study there are self-assessment questions which help the learner to monitor their own progress. There are no further assignments required.
The course includes three sections:
- A short overview of Montessori theory, helping the learner to understand the foundation principles upon which the method is built.
- A chapter on the Role of the Assisting Montessori Guide, helping the learner to know how to support the children in the best possible way, working in cooperation with, and under the guidance of, the main Montessori guide.
- Videos giving an overview of the materials relevant to the age group. The videos introduce the characteristics and the basic use of the materials, although they do not show how to make full presentations. In the 0-3 and 12-18 courses, there are also videos on environments and characteristics of the age group. (Please specify which age group you choose to study – 0-3, 3-6, 6-9, 9-12 or 12-18 years.)
A Certificate of Completion will be issued when all self-assessments have been completed at a level that indicates that the course content has been studied.
